I have another postcard to the Netherlands. Netherlands and USA are my main destinations.
- Topic Alexandra listed her main likes for postcards as fairy tales and cats. I decided on cats again, but I did not want to do another realistic one like the Coon Cat, while that was very popular. I decided to do a sleeping cat. The way cats curl up to sleep fascinates me and I found a great picture of one curled around almost upside down. I started to outline the picture with a few lines so I could get the proportion right on the postcard, then stopped. I liked it just as it was. 10 lines was all it needed, loose, free and a bit abstract.
- Medium Having got the lines on paper, I simply went over them in black pen and that was it. Hopefully less is more.
- Outcome I like, but I know what it is, showed others and they got it finally. So not sure how it will go down, but I love the flowing lines and its enigma, maybe it is just like cats?
So enough of the cats, I need to give dogs equal time. Where are the dog lovers on Postcrossing?
