Nihonga on Hold: Childlike wonder
10 June 2012 2 Comments
While my wife was pregnant I began thinking, again, about imagination. How it seems like we lose it as adults, how it seems to come so naturally to children. Subsequently I started looking for photos that seemed to convey childlike wonder and sketched from them. Last week I tore them out of my sketchbook and added some pastel color and metal leaf to them.
I’m not sure the metal leaf was the best choice here, but when you’re just messing around in the few spare minutes available to you these are the choices a person makes.
