|FLISS'S HAT TRAGEDY|
Mixed Media on Watercolour Paper

FLISS AND THE LADIES GROUP ANNUAL HAT COMPETITION
Fliss, as you can see, is not a happy bunny
She made her own hat and it took a lot of time and money.
She made it to her own design.
- I don't like it, but she thinks it's fine.
She loves the feather and all the flowers,
And making it passed many enjoyable hours.
But then Fliss had a great surprise
- She really couldn't believe her eyes.
A garden, some posts and washing she sees,
And a girl hanging clothes out to dry in the breeze.
This invasion by that squatter of minimal size,
Means our Fliss now has no chance of winning the prize.
That's why she looks grumpy, as grumpy can be,
Though I think the hat's improved, and I'm sure you'll agree.
|A NEW APPROACH FOR ME -|
SKETCH, COLLAGE AND SKETCH
I thought I would try a different approach for this piece, starting with a sketch, adding some collage elements, continuing with more sketching and then colouring. The A3 sheet of watercolour paper I used already had splodges of pink watercolour on it.
Next I cut out the hat shape from Docrafts 'Papermania' paper and free-cut the flower shapes from magazine pages. The flowers that look black are in fact purple, but the colours on the photo have not come out very true.
So this is how it looked when the collage/sketch was done - my entry for the Take A Word challenge of "Hats-N-Things'', for Creative Every Day and Sketchbook Challenge "Sketch and Collage".
