Creative process

This year I participate in Y is for Yellow by Carla Sonheim. The most inspirational teacher I know. I want to show you the creative process of photo to illustration.

For the lesson we made left handed drawings and blind drawings from animals. I used a picture of a cow I made years ago. I watched her and draw her back a few times.

Then I draw her with my non- dominant hand and after that with my eyes closed. (All instructions by Carla) This is the blind drawing.

I really liked the form of this cow. The neck does not close properly, but you can imagine that the line is a leg.

So I cut this form out a paper which I used under a project for rusting. Left over paper.

I made a journal page which I posted in the the Facebook group.

Someone in the group suggested to let Minimie ride on the cow and this is the result. I printed the cow on a paper I found. There were all ready ink splashes on it. 

It was a short experiment, she is definitely not a cowgirl!

It is such a good feeling being in the flow and feeling that everything around you helps you to make something beautiful.
