This weekend I decided to use my Buntstifte (colored pencils) to do some drawings… and to stay away from the laptop! Sometimes I just need to reassure myself that the keyboard and the screen are not extensions to my hands/arms and eyes. I need to disconnect myself from the online world on purpose. It’s hard but not impossible!
Back to drawing… I used a promotional picture from OPI’s France collection – or La Collection de France, which I discovered in Instyle‘s November 2008 issue. But due to my lack of practice, I just left out some details from the original picture such as the hands, which I have never been good at drawing. I also changed the color scheme to make it a little brighter and because I didn’t have all the color shades!
Here’s the original picture and the end (or let’s say test) result:
Feel free to make comments – but please don’t be too cruel.
As I said – I’m just sharing here some weekend activity… The word “artist” in today’s title is nothing more than wishful thinking! Plus – where’s your holiday spirit? Falalalala la lala la…
