Leaves design colored line work

I often enjoy starting with a previous design and then pushing the design that bit further ,examples if this can be seen the following images.

Using the  jungle play painting as a starting point I created a section of the image tracing over the image, I then used pencil and pen to  mirror the sectioned area and then let my imagination fill in the gaps.

My second piece develops this idea  further  creating a new image that takes the work in a new direction . Both paintings can be viewed on my paintings page

 

 

 

Creating my jungle dreams

I love the idea of using a conventional image using my imagination to add a little something more , starting with a photograph that I took on a sunny day in my back garden. In this case I found myself including a mysterious character in the background. This can be seen further in my follow on line work design
