I’ve had this big 2’x4′ canvas sitting around for a while. It had a light pink splatter on it and was screaming for something fun.
So this morning, I had some downtime during my conference, so I painted this runner girl.
I’ve got an entire series in mind now… wouldn’t it be fun to do silhouettes of a girl hurdling or a girl kicking a soccer ball… yeah, lots of ideas, not much time.
I don’t know why I like to create pieces in blue of little girls with wide open happy expressions. I guess because it doesn’t seem like the natural choice? Maybe I need therapy!
Anyway, I created this today. I like it.
It’s marker on watercolor paper. I love the mix of the two elements. Watercolor paper is NOT the natural choice for Copic markers! But I truly love how the strokes come through the tooth of the watercolor paper. I realize that some may not appreciate my choice, but that’s okay. I like it! 🙂
