Drawing challenge: Tiny
Tiny! What a lovely concept Tammie thought of for this week’s drawing challenge. Thank you so much Tammie.
I’m a big fan and a big collector of tiny things.
I love to stage found tiny things around the studio as inspiration while I paint.
But I’m trying to concentrate on a project right now, and that’s that series of 8 maps I wrote about yesterday, so came up with this idea for our DC: The Little Owl.
A bit of a variation on “tiny”, but hey, artistic license. 😀
The work has taken me three days, (here is the map at the end of day two), but I was concerned that I get them the actual size on the map, because they are only about 6 inches tall.
I chose this map for them to stand on because of the repetition of the word little on it, it felt right, and also, their range goes up into this area of Lancashire, so all good.
I’m very happy with this painting, and also with the way this first map took the paint because I was a bit worried about the war substitute paper it’s printed on.
Now to clean up the studio, get rid of the logs R brought in for me as reference, and chose a new map for the jay.
Thanks again Tammie, that was loads of fun, and now I’m off to check out everyone else’s interpretations. Won’t you pop over to Tammie’s and have a visit too? Better yet, come join us. 😀
