Flower Head Lady
Sometimes I wonder if I should leave a drawing in black & white — just black lines on white paper, and that’s that. No color.
But then I think it would be more interesting or vibrant or better with just a splash of color. “Just the leaves,” I’ll say, but then can’t resist adding color to her hair. “Flame hair will be so cool!”
Then it’s sort of downhill from there, because the existing line art has basically become a coloring book.
The drawing is still a work in progress. I like the b&w version, but also like the color version. I’ve since added color to the two flowers at lower left as well, because, yes, I couldn’t resist throwing down some marker and colored pencil.
I’m not sure how and with what the rest of the page will go. I’ve considered insects (moth, butterfly, line of ants…) or just abstract green plant leaves in place of a body. Body or no body? That is the question. How about I go explore that now…
This is a Valentine’s Day card I made for my boyfriend’s mom and her soon-to-be-husband (they have been together for over 10 years, but are making it official!).
