The Queen of Hearts

I've never been much of an illustrator, but sometimes doodles turn into something more elaborate.  While waiting for someone, I started a little doodle as a circle, that turned into a heart, that turned into a body and face and hat and and.... so it goes.

And now I want to put some colour to it so I'll put it onto watercolour paper and see what comes out of it.  Perhaps thoughts of Valentines were spinning in my head after a trip through a local store.  Christmas is just gone and yet the red is back again, this time in the form of hearts.   There's a little doodle that I'm working on now in colour, but its not quite ready yet.  Tomorrow perhaps.

After this, I guess I should be drawing shamrocks or bunnies.

Hi Jeanette,
I like your "Queen of Hearts", complete with buttons and festive hat! I bet it will be special in color!

Lovely, delicate, whimsical mark making... I look forward to seeing it in colour.

Thanks Peggy, strange how things evolve sometimes isn't it?

Jo, glad you enjoy it, it was fun to do.

Hedera,I want an antique look to it, so will play around and see what happens.

Beautiful! Such a lovely face and nice whimsical details. It is very nice as is, but I also look forward to seeing it with watercolor added.

It's charming, Jeanette! I always find it interesting that when you least plan things, the most creative things result.

Christiane, thanks, it is a whimsical piece and unlike what I normally do. Colour may change it entirely, but I too like just the drawing.

Ronell, it is quite Valentine-y

Sue, you're right. When you don't think about it, things just fall off the pencil don't they?
