Collage Drawing

My attention span is very short. In order to expand my drawing skills I started doing this:

I still am in the process of filling in color.

To start this process I started with the little box in the center, added a ruffle on the outside and x’d the center. I then created shapes like the two large butterflies and connected them to the box by way of curvy lines and circles. As the collage expanded I added things I liked or reference to like the car is the same color as my car. The doll next to it refers to my doll collection. The dog is in honor of my dog and so it goes.

I would liked to have colored this with water colors but that is the one medium I have not tried yet. The colored pencils are the easiest but I might draw the next one on canvas and paint it.

I have several of these drawing notebooks in various sizes whose paper is of high quality and will accommodate most mediums including paint. We like to go to auctions and while waiting for the auction to start, you will find me drawing in a smaller version of this notebook.

Have a wonderful day.

I love art, especially photography and painting. My next addition is crafts or primarily needlecrafts. And as if that was not enough, I am a genealogist.
