Sketchbook Part 5
I like drawing simple buildings and creating imaginary cities. This blob, that honestly looks more like the Starship Enterprise or a sideways creature, than a city, challenged me to become a city on a mountain side.
|I took the challenge by watering down the dye and dragging it about to create the mountain, and then drew the city over the top. My friend, Sonja, said it reminded her of the Pussy Hats woman made and wore to the 2017 Women's March.|
|The left hand page started with a flipped replica of the Starship, and became a city on a red hill.|
|This page started with random strokes to use up some left over paint. The paints mixed on the brush giving me something that looked like the red rocks of southern Utah.|
|I added blue clouds and it too, told me it was done. Not as happy with the clouds as I am with the mountains but I really love the mountains. I don't know if I could repeat them if I tried.|
|Since we've ventured outside of the cities. . .this forest was inspired by some blue drips and drops that had made their way on to the page with the dyes.|
|Another secret forest inspired by drips and blobs.|
|I think there are some critters hiding in the sides there.|
|More blob inspired trees. What a surprise.|
|A few extra highlights later and now I'm calling it done.|
I suppose it could be a before people, and after.
