It’s Scribble Picnic again. This week is Cabin. You can see all the beautiful cabin art at Scribble Picnic by clicking on the link. This week I was thrilled to work together with my daughter Chloe. She is eleven and also an artist/writer. I am going to share her cabin picture first:
She used colored pencil and I found it very difficult to show the colors while brightening up the page. So I left it less brightened so that you can see her beautiful color work. Our gracious host, Michael McVean, has however cleaned up the original and I have placed his version here instead. Thank you so very much for the attention to this. You can see her colors and lines so much better.
I started the week with a sketch:
Then I copied that only a heavy watercolor paper and once again used the Sennelier watercolors. I thought at this point that I was also going to use ink and brush but later chose not to.
Coloring the background with a wash:
Then the flowers. I outlined them with marker but later wished I hadn’t. They look alright though.
I also did a background for the actual cabin.
Then the trees came in:
Finally the rest of the details:
I loved this assignment and I learned a lot from it. Thanks to Scribble Picnic for the prompt. Now I’m heading over to take a look at all the other beautiful cabins.
