{Spotlight Project} Shirley's Inspired by Pablo Picasso



Hi peeps, I'm back with another 'Inspired By', and this week I'm inspired by Pablo Picasso. This painting, Mediterranean Landscape, was painted in 1953.



I was struck by the colourful, sun drenched house, the blue sky and sea, and by the foreground of gardens. And this is what I came up with:



I started off by stamping and colouring The Bee's Knees Houses and drawing a shoreline and horizon and colouring in the sea.



Then I added the crazy paving lines for the foreground.



I coloured in the sky and the foreground.



Added some vegetation in the gardens.



Then I added some highlighting with white pen around the windows and doors and on the flowers. I didn't have any room for a boat, but I had room for a palm tree, which I just drew in.



Here's a look at the finished card again. The sentiment is made from Sentiment Builders: Love and Sentiment Builders: Happy.



Back next week with another Inspired By. Bring your sunglasses!
