Joy drawing - with colour!

I am really loving this playful drawing now that I've added more to it and coloured it in.

ink, markers, pencil crayons


  1. The color is so vibrant, so full of life and happiness. It makes me want to leap out of my chair and dance. Thank you for sharing! :)

  2. Fine colors, fine lines, great sentiment! nancy

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today and leaving such a kind comment. I'm new to Blogland and am blown away by the generosity and talent that exists here! Kudos to you for sticking to your creative path despite obstacles...the mark of a true artist!

    I am very flattered that you're following me...the people that I'm coming in contact with through this whole blog phenomenon have provided me with some little lesson or realization that help make me a better artist and overall, happier human being!

    Thanks for being one of those people! Your perserverence and positive messages, happy colors and willingness to experiment are all inspiration for the rest of us! Keep at it! I'll be talking to you soon, I'm sure :)

    All my Best,
    Paint Myself Pretty

  5. Wow!
    Thank you all so much for sharing your comments! They made my day :-)
    ~Bright blessings to you all~
    Have a great day

  6. I love it! Reminds me of something from Dr. Suess :P

  7. That's exactly what it reminded me of too Ruthie!
    I love Dr. Seuss stuff :-)

  8. I love this one so much that I don't know any words to adequately express it. This would have to make even the most hardened of criminals happy! Hopefully it wouldn't inspire them to commit more crime, though, if that's what they loved doing :-)

    Seriously, what a GREAT painting! (it's paint, right?)

  9. I just read that it's a drawing, so that means you didn't use paint? What medium did you use?

  10. hi Ames,

    you made me laugh out loud with your astute criminal comments ;-)

    I drew the picture first with waterproof black ink and then coloured it in with cheap markers!
    (with a hint of pencil crayon for the pale background)

    The ink needs to be waterproof for this otherwise it will smear when the markers touch it.
    I guess one could draw it with pencil, colour with marker, then do the lines in any kind of ink - even not waterproof - but I've never much liked drawing with pencil.
    I love the bold look of the heavy black lines.

    I am pretty happy with this drawing - I have it on the wall by my bed and it makes me smile each time I look at it.
    I'm glad you liked it too!
    thank you for commenting ☺


  11. beautiful sentiment and colors!
