Day 19: Inkblot Swan Garden

November 19th, 2011

Today was busy! We had visitors, who brought their 6 week old baby. He weighs nearly as much as 6 month old Annabelle (he's big and she's little), but he had that sweet 6 week old smushiness that Annabelle has long left behind. Makes us realize how big she's become, sitting up all on her own now, taking off her daddy's glasses, and talking to her toys.

With little time, I turned to my sketchbook inkblots and use them to make this image. And now, it's time to crash. Happy weekend, all!

I love the colors! How much of this was an inkblot and how much did you add?

Thanks! The dark blue (heads, in the bird bellies), yellow, and some of the purple (bird wings, swirls below the swans and tops of the trees) were from the inkblots. I added the white, black, turquoise, and a little more purple.

I love the color & the design!

I really like that a lot. I have a bit of a swan obsession recently, so that may have something to do with it.

This is just lovely! I’m always amazed at the graceful figures that emerge from your art.
