For the topic “Tree” at Illustration Friday. I started this sketch a while back but set it aside like so many other things recently. I’ve been in a weird mood I suppose and keep changing projects. But I couldn’t NOT join IF this week with a great topic like “Tree”! When I first saw the topic I thought I’d do another tree house (can never have too many) but then I decided to work on this and figured I’d make it into my entry. Which I did.
Tons of progress pics! You can see how I couldn’t decide about the background. In the end I probably should have left it that solid fuchsia. And the curlique thingers aren’t working so well here, though I am considering filling the rest of the block with them to neutralize the effect a bit. I do really like the odd cat (despite some anatomy problems) and cute girl (shoulder issue). And I’m happy with the bold color because I thought my goat entry for “Shy” was a bit anemic, color wise. Ah well, back to the drawing board!
Thanks a bunch for visiting!
