15 Illustrations: Family Time in Bed

Advertisements

I received some art supplies at Christmas this year – a Canson 11×14″ Illustration art pad 150lb with 15 sheets – and a set of prismacolor ink pens size .005, .01, .03, .05, and .08. This series is inspired by my family and all of the fun and interesting things we do together.

 

“Family Time” portrays a family get together in a big bed (the family dog being beside and not on the bed) with an inktense pencil sun yellow patterned wall in the background. I thought it would be fun to add one color (monochrome element) to this series using a different color for each piece. The coolest thing about this series is that I can work as little as 15 minutes a day and see quite a bit of progress. I mostly work on these while E.K. sleeps.

Some details I like about this piece: the yellow patterned wall in the background and the patterned blanket

 

Striped socks and striped sweater

patterned shirt and baby onesie and the dog’s pig nose
