I was struggling with an idea for today’s art project, and finally decided to make another Tangle Folk.
The only preconceived idea I had before I started drawing was that I wanted her to be holding some long ribbons. Everything else came about a step at a time, which was mostly quite fun!
I couldn’t figure out what to add on the left side of the tile to tone down the big expanse of white space, so I eventually decided she is outdoors with these ribbons and her dog, and has set her handbag and her sack of ribbons on the grass so she can twirl around with these long ribbons in her hand, with her dog chasing along trying to grab the ribbon ends. If I’d thought that far ahead *before* I started drawing, I would’ve added a sidewalk and picnic table and then drawn her handbag and sack on the table — this is when planning ahead a bit might’ve been handy ;-).
Okay, for those of you who draw, my intent with scribbling some grass underneath the handbag and sack was to help ground them, so they didn’t appear to be floating in the air beside her. Should I have still added some sort of horizon somewhere in there? If so, whereabouts….and what would you use as the horizon (small hills? just a line of some sort? something else?)?
