would never have attempted otherwise. All this month she is focusing on eyes and encouraging us to leave our comfort zones and try out new creations that centre on those 'windows of the soul'. Kim herself has created a great Manga style face this week with unmistakable Manga eyes! Please do link up and see her work and that of the other artists and maybe have a go at some eye art of your own! Kim has all the information you need for taking part over at her blog.
I stayed on the theme of eyes, but instead of creating something for a project, or a finished piece of art, I grabbed my sketch book and just had some fun doodling!
Using pencil, fine liner and Inktense, I just started to doodle a large eye shape - it's A4 size - and let my imagination take me on its own journey - far out to sea, it would seem! This was drawing purely for relaxation. I might use the design on a project in the future, or it might not lead anywhere in particular. It was just a little exploration. I've called my doodle 'The Mermaid's Eye' because I would love to return to this idea and maybe scale it down to become part of a mermaid or siren's face when I have more time.
For this eye I just played with doodled shapes and reflections. I wonder who the owner of this one might be? If I were to come back to it and build a face around it, would it be a goddess or a mysterious Venetian lady regarding the world from behind her elaborate mask? Thank you so much for joining me to take a peek at my eye doodles. In the coming weeks I will have lots more projects to share, I hope. Meanwhile have a great, creative week.
