The Return of Darth Vador

Do you return to a favorite art medium over and over again?  Kind of like watching a favorite movie several times!

I created this owl tonight after returning home from the lake.  I find creating patterns soothing when I am short on time.

Afterwards, I noticed my owl looked a little like Darth Vador from Star Wars!  LOL!

When I was in college, I took an art class that was all about creating patterns.  I really enjoyed the class and got an A!  I still have my art from that class and will have to dig it out and show you one of these days…

I started creating these patterns on black paper with color pencils almost one year ago.  Here is an owl I did:

It is fascinating to see how my work has changed and evolved in a year.  And that I still like creating owls!

I would love to hear what art medium you return to over and over again and what it brings you – Joy?  Peace?  A special memory?

Happy Creating!  🙂

    • Thanks Johanna! 😊 I’m glad I have inspired you! I love using Prismacolor pencils on black paper. They are so creamy. I hope you will post what you create on black paper on your blog as I’d love to see it! xo

  3. I loved this exercise that we did last year on black paper. I think that this is when I discovered that I could draw birds. The quality of the pencil crayons makes a big difference when drawing on black. I immediately went out and bought better crayons after my first attempt.
