Whimsey page willowing art course week 2 part 2
For week 2 of the willowing art course we are required to draw some whimsey figures. I have never drawn whimsey figures before so am very pleased at the way they have turned out. The page needed to be about a childhood trauma but I was lucky enough not to have a trauma involving abuse, death etc so I have painted one of my happiest memories from my own childhood. My best friend unfortunately moved house when I was very young so instead I used to play in the garden on my swing for hours watching the birds and dreaming or reading a book about fairy tales or imaginary characters from far off lands..grimms fairy tales was a favourite of mine along with alice in wonderland and hans christian anderson..
