Happy mother’s day!
I created something a little different for my mother-in-law. Can’t wait to hand her the card on Sunday. Hope everyone’s having a lovely mother’s day 🙂
Media used: watercolour pencils, wax twister, ink
Wishing everyone an exciting, joyful, fruitful and another creative year ahead…!
Good morning Melbourne,
Here’s another version of my earliest penguin series. Enjoy and happy Monday!
Do you remember the moment or a day you first saw a giraffe? I remember how I visited the zoo for the first time and was amazed by its incredible length- from its tail hairs, eye lashes, long legs to its neck and head…this animal seemed to be created and shaped around lengthening. As I was drawing the picture, I come to realise the imponderableness of this amazing creature. The body, the long neck, colours, and the unequal-sized legs have struck me in awe.
I believe as we get older, it becomes more difficult to recall the first impression of the world’s amazing things.
My penguin always helps to remind me of seeing the world in a clearer, limpid and uncritical eyes. At least he gives me a chance to appreciate things that we tend to take for granted.
I hope he talks to your heart and mind as well.
Finished adding colours yesterday. The penguin does look more alive in colours.
One sunny afternoon the penguin was slowly walking along the brick road to somewhere with a huge flower bouquet. Where is he heading to? Who is in his mind?
Imagination is the beginning of creation and often better than knowledge. (as in more positive and fun most of the time 🙂 The best part is that it’s limitless. And that is so powerful.
One of the many other designs of the penguin post card series.
I will add colours to them soon…considering using both colour pencils and watercolours, perhaps some clouds collage at the back. Stay tuned.
