“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” – Pablo Picasso
These colorful masks are icons in the annual Inti-Raymi June Solstice Festivals in South America where the indigenous Indians mark the placement of the sun. The sketch at the top of this post helped firm up details for a future painting, and I worked on the pencil drawings with uninhibited freedom last week as I waited for a meeting with immigration! That night the colors were washed with equal spontaneity, and I am ready to move forward soon with the larger-than-life painting. Although the rough sketch took very little time to complete, the essence of the future painting is captured.
Long ago I loved doodling with an Etch-a-Sketch, and now there’s an easy access for online doodling! SCRIBBLER!
I was not able to save my Scribbler drawing of the mask, but I’ll leave you with the reins to try some scribbles of your own. Knock off those bad-weather blues with uninhibited childlike scribbles and Have Fun!
