This is our topic for this week  I believe it has been a very popular book and movie, yet I have never seen or read anything about it before.  That was good in one sense in that I wouldn't have to rid myself of any preconceived ideas.  On the other hand, it was hard for me to come up with something.  Finally I just put pencil to paper and kind of doodled around for an idea or two.  Amazingly this began to take shape and once I'd got started it wasn't hard to finish.

So here we are:  
The Girl with the Red Balloon.

I really wanted to get the feeling of movement.  My husband tells me these are sharks not dolphins, so if they are they are friendly ones.

wonderful idea. sharks, dolphins, I'm even sure myself but it's still a good idea.

Haha, they could be dolphins on their sides so those are their flappers instead of a sharks' fin! :)
This is a really fun piece, Chris! A totally different --love it. Well drawn too. The colours are so tropical. :)

BTW, you added "https" to the front of your address instead of simply "http" so have fixed it and created the link to go to the actual post itself (http://www.flamblogger.blogspot.com/2014/08/creative-tuesday.html )instead of your home page--that will help others find it easier. :)

A brisk breeze for sure and as for the dolphins, I would not have noticed had you not mentioned it. Nice picture.

This is wonderful Chris. I love that she is on a surf board and the balloon and wind are carrying her across the water. You have certainly depicted lots of movement.
Oh and I thought they were dolphins.

Love this drawing, Chris! Decades from now, it will be hanging in an art gallery somewhere...The Girl With the Red Balloon, by ChrisJ.

The scenery looks a lot like Hawaii!
