Year of the Fairy Tale – Vegetable Love

20 Apr

The Princess loves her pea
For without it
you see
She’d be like you and me.

Pea Love, cheap acrylic paint & cheap paper

Assignment was to do an illustration for The Princess & The Pea using a credit card as our “paint brush”.  The horizontal lines represent the mattresses and the big round green thing is a vegetable.

I started the illustration by smearing paint with a credit card over the entire paper:

      Becca,
      The trick with the credit card is not to use it to charge!
      (yup, it’s the best painting tool to force you not to focus on the product and go with the process)

        LOL — you are correct … To prevent credit card “use” I have several empty gift cards I use — creates great results if you are trying to go with the flow with hints of color in “just the right unplanned spots”! :D

    Being a vegan….does that mean I’m a Princess? There has to be some reward for eating my all those Veggies. Love both works….especially the one done with Credit Card. Nice Abstract.

    That is one large vegetable, assume the Princess would notice that under any amount of mattresses, and, a MUCH better use of the plastic – no bill at the end of the month!
