The Beatles – Art Journal Page

This week’s Art Journal Adventure prompt was “Here comes the sun”.  I wish!  This Winter has been so grey and dull that I am longing for sunshine.  The intention of the prompt was to create an art journal page featuring the sun.  However, as a Beatles fan, I just had the song lyrics playing over and over in my head and I decided to go down that path and create an illustration of The Beatles in my art journal.  My 9 year old is a huge Beatles fan so I let him choose the “era” that I would depict.  He chose the Sergeant Pepper era and I am glad he did as it made for a brightly coloured page.  I drew the illustration with fountain pen and added colour with watercolour.  It was fun reducing Ringo, John, Paul, and George to simplified shapes and trying to capture something of their looks and personalities.  I must admit I am rather pleased with how this drawing turned out.
