ATC - Rituals

Life Book 2014 Week 24 we are to create two ATCs (Artist Trading Cards).  One card to keep and one to trade.  The theme is rituals - what we do as artists to get our creative juices flowing.  I don't really have a ritual per se, but I find that I do get a lot of ideas swirling around in my head when I'm listening to music - especially when I'm out for a walk.  It's a peaceful time - nothing in particular on my mind - just enjoying the music and exercise.

I created a background on watercolor paper then drew a couple of whimsical girls groovin' to the music.  Once dry, the paper was cut to size.  These sweet little drawings measure 2-1/2W by 3-1/2H.

I can hardly wait to see who I am paired up with for the swap!

Girls Just Like to Have Fun...

Life Book 2014, Week 23, led by Tamara Laporte.  We are to draw a stag and use patterns in the back and foreground.

The first thing that came to mind when I heard "stag" was a "stag party."  Don't ask me why!  I don't usually draw animals - my take on the theme is a Stag Party-Girl.
