My ONE WORD for 2017 is #BEYOND. I want to go beyond my comfort zone and try new things; play with new ideas and develop stories. In one sitting I filled an entire sketch book page with goals. I gave each one a #hastag.
#PRACTICE and #PLAYMORE were my inspirations for this illustration. I want to get better at creating without a preconceived sketch and to be more comfortable with letting the "accidents" happen. I "built" this piece by painting the shapes before adding any line detail. Letting the feel of the brush lead the way is difficult for me. I am a perfectionist to the point of overworking my art to death. But I did it...and I like how it turned out :D
Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
