I Wanted To See If I Could ...

One of my absolute favorite artist, for YEARS, has been Laurel Burch (December 31, 1945 – September 13, 2007)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE all the color she used.

As you can see she died 6.5 years ago but you can still purchase her art on almost EVERYTHING, purses, scarves, cups...basically anything that can be printed on they sell it.  Whoever is in charge of her estate has managed to sell the rites to TONS of different companies for production purposes so I am still a happy girl when I see something of "hers".

This week I decided to do something "Laurel Burch - like".  Color is always a challenge for me so it really was a challenge... not the drawing but the coloring.

I actually did them on another piece of  'paper' but I wasn't happy with the background so I cut them out and did them with a more "doodle" background.  

I didn't use as many patterns on each like LB but I'm happy with how they came out..  

I used BIC markers for most of the coloring, all except the biggest one, I started that one with watercolors but switched over to BIC markers. ... I drew them on the inside of a Lean Cuisine box.
