Life Book 2016: Your Quirky Amazing Life


This is my most recent mixed media project  for Life Book 2016 called “Your Quirky Amazing Life.” The idea was to draw some “quirky birds” in a painting that also represented things in your life that were important to you.  For me that was a no-brainer.  My family is the most important thing in my life and it was fun to draw us this way.

The project wasn’t difficult but it did take a long time to complete.   I used 12″x16″ hot press watercolor paper for this project. Additional supplies were a graphite pencil, water soluble crayons, tombow markers, acrylic paints, white gesso, and pitt pens.

Before I started sketching,  I wrote down some things that I think of when I think of my family.  For me it is photography, for my sons it is music and basketball. My husband has the biggest heart and is quite smart so I created his bird to represent those qualities.

I had a lot of fun with this project.  Thanks for looking!
