Random. . .
I gessoed a couple of pages in my sketch book and ripped up a brown paper bag and gessoed three pieces of the bag onto those pages... (above). I just let the pages speak to me and the pig came first, then the Asian man, my little girl in the red dress came next and finally my little Indian princess looking through the window. My princess is covering up a picture of boy eating cakes (he was printed on the bag)- he actually looks more like he's having a poo - he had to go....I then jotted down the words that randomly came into my head... I didn't think at all... the colours just happened as well.
I've never been to India, so where the influence for this came, who knows... I was just sitting in the sun on the steps at the back of the school in my lunch break playing with my art supplies... having a "little fun and nonsense" xx
I'm sharing this with Sunday Sketches ....
Ps... yes it does say in the corner that My body is a temple for chocolate... :) who's isn't?
