Day Two...go with the flow exercise...that is what I call it anyway!

Okay, here is day two...well sort of, I didn't really stop were it was intended to stop, but that is the way of the art muse, isn't it?

This is the grey scale shot, the color view follows.

This was a free movement, whole arm drawing on printed scrap booking paper...oh my I have so much of this stuff that I decided I better start using it, or just toss it! I created this with the idea of tearing it up for collage but now that it seems to have spawned a little story in my head, perhaps I will keep it for a bit before it meets the ripping fingers! hehe

At any rate, I had fun with this exercise. We are suppose to do one on a daily basis incorporating lines, circles, dots and other shapes, just mostly to free up your hand and mind I think.

Here is the color can see I have used many colored pens all Sharpie Poster Paint Pens that I bought several years ago when I heard they were being discontinued! I also used some PanPastel to create the ground and to tone down the bright paper in spots where I felt it needed to be recessed a bit into the background...didn't really recess it much, but you can sort of see that a little I think.

Those of you that know me know that I have an imagination for little tales that seem to come to me from out of the air at times. This has sparked one. It will be the tale of Saint Catacus Malthus and the Evil Spider...perhaps I will journal it, or perhaps I will blog it, or maybe both!


  1. I love this! I love this paper you used, too. This class looks like something I may have to take some time. I can't right now, but its going to be great, because I love doodling and the artistry of it.

  2. Love this! I need to dig out some of my scrapbook papers I have been hording!

    Loving the class too! I am so glad you mentioned it otherwise I would not be having so much fun....or neglecting my housework (yeah who am I kidding, now I just have a valid excuse) haha
