So, I follow Linda G. Hill, and I’ve been doing her Stream of Consciousness Saturday for eons. I’ve been avoiding her other prompts and groups because: mostly time. Add in depression and general “I dun wanna do nuthin.” I’ve seriously avoided her One-liner Wednesday, but now that seems to be creeping into my life and blogs. Yes, blogs, plural, as I think the One-liner will be really appropriate for my learning Photoshop artsy-ish blog!
NOW, I may just combine her Escapist Coloring Club stuff with a few other projects I have going on. (Does this mean I’m stalking her?) It’s a long story, but I’ve been involved in another blogger’s real life, semi-anonymous, random-acts-of-kindness, snail mailing, support group. As part of that mailing I’ve been putting doodles in or on the cards I send. My cards have recently changed, so I can no longer draw on the insides them. For some reason I’m fixated on this, even though, believe me, the doodles were just doodles, like you’d draw during a really bad business meeting (redundant).
I discovered that half of a page from my small watercolor pad is exactly the size of my mailing envelopes. I saw Linda’s June prompt for the coloring club. !Lightbulb! I know! I’ll draw my own coloring page, because I’m too cheap to buy and my printer sucks, and I’ll color that and add a spiffy quote on the back and enclose it with the random mailings! That’s like
nuts over-achieving unlikely to continue wtf awesome!
I’ve never done a coloring-book-type of drawing, so yeah, wth? Heavy lines totally enclosing all areas. Ohhkay. Here goes.*
Let’s keep this all in blogland! What to draw? Can you guess what this is just by the line drawing?
This almost gives me a headache to look at. 🙂
I will color it in with watercolor, which I am not deft with, but hey, that’s only fitting at this point. Who the heck knows how it’ll turn out. While this isn’t ArT, it is a step up from the doodly-doodles I’ve been doing on the cards.
If it works, and if I don’t get totally exhausted from it (it should be relaxing, but I have no clue), there may be several of these things.
I have no idea if I’m doing Coloring Club right, but that is also par for the course right now.
*Oddly, the broken left wrist/elbow/arm didn’t really interfere with this effort, except to make me take time breaks where I normally wouldn’t. The sketchpad is heavy enough that it didn’t need a lot of anchoring with my left hand, and the right hand wasn’t scrubbing at the page.
