A new book cover.
I have been wanting to try this,
and today I did it. First I used a lot of different colours and covered my canvas. I had no other intensions than to cover it up with paint. When done I felt it was a bit too dark so I added some white dots.
Next I drew a simple shape on top and detailed it a bit.
At this point I had chosen how I would like it to be. I added colour to my shape and freshened up the black lines at the end.
More colour and some finishing touches. I really like how it turned out and think I will try this again. Originally I was going to continue my earlier work but, it will not play along so I guess the time is not right yet.
This kind of work suits me well if I feel a bit playful and just want to see what happens. A lot of things can happen and it's always exciting to see what comes out in the end.
Our weather has changed to ice cold. Brrrr............
Wish you all the best!
