…and turnips and other earthy things like wheelbarrows.
It is really hard sometimes to set aside time to just totally play isn’t it?
As soon as I think I can get down to just doodling and using different media in unusual ways to get my creativity going I realise that I have x,y,z task that MUST be done.
Above are some let loose onions I did today – working from the “live” onion.
I am glad though today that I just said “bugger it” and retreated to my art room and started to mess about with simple sketches of onions and then moved on to turnips.
I love root and other bulbous vegetables because of the glorious shapes they have and the design possibilities they offer.
These are my simple contour drawings done in biro. I tried to keep my pen on the paper for the whole drawing. That is great fun.
So – without further ado here is what I rustled up yesterday and today and had a lovely time doing so.
PS – I had recently bought a stash of rainbow circle tissue cutouts for the fun of it and sprinkled those around too.
