I stumbled upon Carla Sonheim‘s website earlier this week and have been completely captivated by her approach to just having fun with drawing and painting. I took a stab at it for yesterday’s index card.
It really is liberating and fun when you aren’t trying so hard at realism and just focus on the fun and whimsy.
It rained today…a rarity in drought stricken California. The fallen flowers and leaves provided ample opportunities for another one of Carla’s exercises — Blob Hunting. You know how sometimes you walk by something and think, that looks like Nixon’s nose! Or a unicorn. Or a Hippopotamus in a tutu. That’s what it feels like. Once I started looking, I couldn’t stop. I forced myself to stop at 4 blob sketches in 10 steps.
Can you tell what the blobs were originally? What do you see in them? I can’t wait to play with these later!
Guess what time of the year it is??? Index Card a Day Challenge! My kit is ready to go. How about yours?
It seems most people have moved over to the Facebook Group. I haven’t decided, but I may just stick with Flickr for now. As with last year, my recent cards will be displayed at the bottom of the right sidebar. I won’t be showcasing them in the blog itself unless I need fodder.
Want to see my cards from past years?
