reach out to my Instagram (IG) followers and got some pretty amazing feedback.
The following images share my little process along the way. As you can see from the last image (where I began) I started with sketching out my idea on tracing paper. Once it's finalized, it's then transferred to my favorite watercolor blocks (Fluid) and I start painting.
You'll notice my final painting is a wee bit different from my beginning sketch - and that's OK! This is the very thing I love about illustrating...the ability to let one's heart go and see where it all ends up when you're done.
How about you? Do you allow yourself the freedom to simply sketch and paint? Or do you place unnecessary restrictions upon yourself that by the time you're done, any joy you had in creating the piece has been smothered or diminished? I'd really like to hear any thoughts you might have on your process of making art. Happy Sunday Sketches!
