I honestly don’t remember the last time I drew something more than a basic doodle. In Year 12 I opted to take ceramics for art for the entire year because I didn’t want to do any drawing or painting. But I’ve had this idea kicking around in my head for a while, and my SIL gave me a new art journal to play in. This was the result.
The waves were inspired by an old Chinese woodblock print I saw recently in the Chinese History Museum in Hong Kong. (Well worth a visit if you are in the city). I used my new water colour crayons that I picked up in a book store in Hong Kong – I didn’t make it to any markets while I was in Hong Kong, but I did go to the bookstore three times 😀 The subject matter is born out of my abiding rage and sorrow at some of my country’s current policies.
Gorgeous Girl was off school today and so I let her look at pinterest for a while and then handed over craft supplies.
I think her flowers are pretty cute.
