It started simply
by smearing around some leftover paint on a couple of blank pages.
A few weeks later I was given a card by a couple of very sweet young ladies
while out walking the dog.
It just so happened that the colors worked well with the paint I had smeared.
Two days later it was time to begin.
"And the little children sang"
was penned next.
I like prompts.
And also the song lyrics worked really well with the page.
Flowers finished. Swirlies drawn in white and drippy bits across the top of the right side.
I am loving the drippy doodle right now.
Over on the left side;
Doodle. Make a hot mess. Try to fix it and make a bigger mess.
Cover it up with gesso.
This time, fix it for real.
Add a little color here; a little contrast there; a few pen lines.
Edge it all in charcoal and add the finish date.
One week from the start date.
Remind myself that Rome wasn't built in a day either.
