Illustration Friday Wednesday


Run man, run. I had one of those creative days today where nothing had to be forced. I love those days. Ideas were flowing, and I knew exactly what I wanted to paint and where I wanted to paint it. On these days I know exactly what colour I'm going to use next & what I'm going to do whilst I'm still doing the previous brush stroke or pencil line. It seems I "get in the zone" and it just comes so naturally. I was hindered somewhat by an awful brush though, it is new but I bought a different brand than what I am used to. Oh, roymac, how I love thee.. why don't they sell you at Spotlight??
Pray for me that the rest of the week is just as creative as today was!.. and maybe the rest of my life while you're at it. Maybe my tormented days of feeling like a useless lazy crappy artist are over... HA!

nice one jules! love that dog. yes those days are great. I, unfortunately, had one of those can't-get-it-out-for-the-life-of-me days. That's when you just have to stop and go get inpired by other people. but I wish for you many creative free flowing days months and years where you just can't get it down fast enough! oh, and hope to see you at the 9x5!
