Life Book 2016: Your Quirky Amazing Life

Standard

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!
