It is such a relief daring to sketch! :)
In a workshop that I'm taking now, The Art of Wild Abandonment, we are taught to dare try. And it is so much fun!
This is an idea that I happily stole from Junelle Jacobsen, the teacher.
I really liked how this sketch turned out in my sketch book. So I just needed to make it bigger and put it into my Art Journal. I like the bowls balancing on top of each other, with the top most bowl filled to the brim with radishes and some are falling out. I just love the little radish that uses her leaves as a parachute. :)
For me this Art journal represent my life now. My life is kind of wobbly right now, not knowing anything for certain.... but the radish using its leaves as a parachute, makes me think that I will land safely on the table.
I liked how the sketch looked in plain pencil, so I though for a while to keep it like that. But then I thought that it might be wiped out, so I figured I'd outline it with a black pen and shade with a grey one.
But I change my mind slightly, along the way. I wanted the sketch to be kind of "colorless"... but I added some color, lightly.
I colored with Faber Castells Big Pit Pen and smudged it slightly before it dried. That gives it a soft feeling and I like it. :)
Here is a close up of the cute paracute radishes. :)
