Digital Drawing Day - Yellow

I love this little yellow bowl. I bought it in Ecuador several years ago. It is quite small—about 3 inches across. I have a purple one and a green one too, but the yellow is my favorite. 

I made a very fussy drawing of it, with a lot of shading and attention to getting the shape just right and it looked pretty bad. Lost the joy of that cheerful little vessel altogether. So I changed to a fat line "brush" and drew right over the top of that agonized drawing. I like this so much. I wonder how I could get to this kind of freedom with my fabric work. I want to think about that.

  2. I love this one too Terry. Very nice indeed.

  3. I think if you layered fabrics and then added your "signature" little black line to outline the shape you would have what you want????

  4. This is terrific! Love the simplicity..
