I am loving doing these children's illustrations on 52 Weeks Illustration Challenge. Some of my earliest memories as a child are of me sitting at the kitchen table drawing with a humble lead pencil, and an exercise book or a piece of butchers paper from mum's shopping, that I would de-crinkle , flatten out, and use.
This weeks theme or prompt word was "growth".
I immediately thought about a pregnant belly, having grown 6 myself, it is one of my favourite times of life. I loved being pregnant. Here is a new mum, in thought, wondering how her life will change. I went away from my usual circle, but think I maybe should have done it still. Oh well. You live and learn.
I copied a generic peace sign from the internet. Then I held it up to the light, put the paper I was painting on in front and roughly drew where I needed to paint.
And there you have it.
A simple little thing to frame. I will be on the search to find a frame just for this. I am quite happy with it.
I thought I better start to live up to the name of my blog and create the peace sign.
And now, some of my favourite paintings from the past little bit. I did a course at Willowing, which many of these came from, and which I thoroughly enjoyed, it was a Fairy Tale course, thus all the Fairy Tale characters.
