Creative Tuesdays; Pillows

"Pillows" is the theme for today's Creative Tuesday. 
  After looking at Michael's references for the assignment, I thought it might be nice to collaborate with my good friend Amy Brand, the artist behind Sweet Pea Felts. You can visit Amy's blog  Sweet Pea Felts, and her Facebook page to see her amazing soft sculptures and photographs. 
Not only does Amy create whimsical little creatures, she's also busy  writing a children's book about two little mice, Sebastian and his little sister Evie. She is always creating, and photographing  little adventures of them for her book and I thought she might have a photograph I could use for the assignment.
Wow did I get lucky! 
She not only agreed to help me out but she had just the photo for me to use.

A Big Thank you  to Amy Brand for allowing me to use her photograph.
Visit Creative Tuesdays to see what the other artists have created today.

Hope you enjoy...

  1. Hi Karen, Wow, you created an amazing likeness of Amy's photo. Love the colors you applied as well. I'll have to check out Amy's FB page. Thanks for the link. And can't wait to see what you come up with next time. :-)

  2. Karen, this is just so sweet and the mice look adorable. A gorgeous sketch with beautiful muted and soft watercolours. Just love their little pink cheeks!

  3. Karen,
    I love your watercolour. So cute. You have me smiling.

  4. Fun to work with your friend in this little illustration. Your watercolors are so delightful and delicate!

  5. Karen this is beyond cute! You and Amy are a great team!

  6. Oh my gosh, that is totally adorable. I love it. And wow, yes, I think I;ve seen Amy's stuff before. She is so talented. Love her work. So imaginative too.

    I love how you've interpreted her darling little pillow fight scene with your painting and colours. Well done. Really well drawn too actually. I love it. Good interpretation. So glad someone actually bothered to look at the CT board in fact..andit even somewhat inspired you in the direction you went. Great job, Karen. Thank you!
