Monsters in the Closet
Here is a doodle of an idea I have for a trompe l' loeil in my closet. I am going with the missing sock theme. I think I am going to start small with something like this and then work my way up to something a little larger in more public areas.
My Daughter posed for some monster ideas this weekend. We had a lot of fun and I got some pretty nice reference pictures. This one has some fun perspectives to play with for a ceiling. I am not sure which ceiling, but I am sure the girls and I will figure it out. We have several closets to pick from. If the girls have their choice, we will have a monster in every closet in our home.
I laugh when I think of a Realtor trying to sell our house, if we do put a monster in every closet. It is a good thing we don't plan to sell this place any time soon.
A closer look at the same pose. I notice that #art is a lot like writing. The rough sketch is the idea. The second sketch is like the initial edit. The more I draw the same #sketch the more solid the ideas become. I bet the pros know this, but I am just discovering the power of a redraw. #art #artist #sketchbook #drawingvia Instagram
A #gouache #colorstudy using the same pallet. This is an attempt to do an imaginary #landscape and play with #composition. I like atmospheric environments. This is my base to begin thinking about entire scenes and not just the single item drawings that I have been doing. #art #artist #sketchvia Instagram
