I began this project a few days ago. I wasn't sure what was going to come of it, I just began drawing lines really. I went to Michael's the other day and purchased some Derwent Inktense Watercolor pencils and I must say... I LOVE THEM!!! In this picture you can see the beautiful intense colors achieved with these 'inktense' pencils. I am not really one for using colors lightly... I have always loved the vibrant tones that I can make with watercolors. I think I use them very much like acrylic paints.
Lately I have been procrastinating, trying to do everything but the 'large' task I have placed before myself. I will find the smallest of things to do before I tackle any of the large task like creating a sculpture as I chip away or smooth out the surface of the larger task a little at a time. Most often I find myself not finishing projects if they are too large or too overwhelming for me to do... I hate that about myself. I want to change... I just do not know how. I am not very good with change.
I like the overall effects of this picture, the words, images and lines create almost a 3D effect. Maybe it's just me, but it feels like those squares on the top and bottom of the page are coming out a little bit towards me ~ or I might just need a new prescription in my glasses! LOL.
Thanks for stopping by. Please let me know what you think.
Happy Creating Everyone.
