and then went in search of words - I always love Victoria Erickson's words and her poem about Winter was perfect to remind myself that we are heading into a cycle of rest, stillness, and being kind to ourselves.
I was happy to keep the words lovehate at the bottom of the page - I love the poem's message but don't like that winter is coming....decided that I needed just a few more side doodles to finish this page but left her face untouched this time
On the facing page I had another girl with great hair space for doodling
I doodled on her body and garment sleeves. Wasn't going to add colour but didn't like what I did when doodling in the background with black pen so covered it with pink paint and love it! So cool that mistakes often lead to an even better result than first intended.
Also really like that I am leaving some of the page clear of doodles
Always so interesting to compare the before and after
