I saw a cute picture of a deer curled up sleeping in a bed of ferns and loved it immediately. For the first time for many months I felt like doing a 'normal' piece of art and this piece seemed like a good piece to start with. I do almost all of my 'normal' art by copying from a picture or photograph, but I wanted to make one large change in this picture. I would substitute a cat for the deer. (Of course!) This is the result:
It measures 4 1/2 X 3 1/2 inches and is drawn with Prismacolors, a little black pen and a tiny bit of white watercolor for the whiskers and some longer cat hairs. I can't find a very thin white pen, so I used a very, very fine paint brush.
I'll still continue to do "Designer Doodles" but I think I've broken through the block I had for doing regular pictures. I just was pushing myself too hard to do more and more complicated things.
Here is one more Designer Doodle I did recently and forgot about:
This is 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches and I have used the same materials -- Prismacolors and black pen. The white in this drawing is the original card. I called this one Lifesaver.
We went to see Les Miserables this past week. I'll post about it soon. I will add some news and other events relating to the theater also. Maybe you heard about it.
Blessed -- peaceful and restful -- Sunday to you.
