Down time is hard to come by. For every one. I know. But I have managed to finish a couple of sweet faces in the past week. I found that the trick for me is to leave some supplies out on my desk. I’m not one to have a clean art desk that’s for sure…but I have been a lot better at it these past few months. And, so I switch out the supplies on my desk now and then. When I get a few minutes, I do a little. Pretty soon that little here, little there adds up to something. Ya know?
Here’s a sweet and sprite-ful my thang I finished today. I used lots of supplies, but enjoyed the watercolors on here the most.
Here is a similar one, also watercolor-ish:
And this one was done with colored pencils and pen. No biggy. But can you see I’m lovin’ lots of color lately? That’s a good thing. Always. This guy was in my journal. He looks like my youngest son. Well, my son doesn’t have blue hair…but the face looks like his.
When I sit down to doodle and paint these simple faces, the time just flies by. It’s all engrossing for me. Sometimes while the face is coming together and starting to look good, I step back and look at it. And I wonder how it came together. How did I do that? Sometimes I think I’m just along for the ride. That’s both a good and a bad feeling I s’pose.
That’s all for today…hope you’re having a good one.
