I completed this doodle in my sketchbook today:
I started it last Sunday, when I was keeping cool with the ceiling fan and air conditioner. We are having extremely high temperatures in the 90’s to 100. This is about 20 degrees above normal in the Pacific Northwest.
It has a ceiling fan look to it, don’t you think?
I then added warm colors with watercolor pencils:
The color starts to give it shape!
I finished it with a few cool colors:
According to Wikipedia, “The cool fan was invented in 1882 by Schuyler Skaats Wheeler. A few years later, Philip Diehl mounted a fan blade on a sewing machine motor and attached it to the ceiling, inventing the ceiling fan, which he patented in 1887. Later, he added a light fixture to the ceiling fan. In 1904, his Diehl and Co. added a split-ball joint, allowing it to be redirected; three years later, this developed into the first oscillating fan.”
Hope you are staying cool!
Happy Creating! 🙂
