Flying like a bird

by Linda Nilsen

I used watercolor pencils on 300g watercolor paper. Size 30x23 cm.

One night I dreamt that I was flying up in the sky, and I only used my sweater to fly with.
That dream never left my head, therefore I had to put it down on the paper.

The girl was the hardest thing to draw, because of the proportions. And the roofs took a long time to paint.

I`m pleased with the colors. The green clothing against the red roof and the purple house behind the yellow t-shirt.

I don`t know what I would have done different in another version of this picture.

We all dream, and you have got your dream on paper,
I only dream I could draw and paint as good.
