Purple Heart!




Purple Heart!
This will be another short blog post as I'm still struggling with the trapped nerve in my neck which is affecting my right arm/hand. Thankfully I am positively responding to physio and acupuncture.
I had this idea whilst sat waiting for my bloods being taken at the hospital, as you could say it's a bleeding heart, lol. The inspiration came from a mixture of the art work on the challenge post, link below.
I’m not a fan of red so decided on purple.
1. Used a brayer for the background and also stamped.
2. Sketched a heart in pencil. Painted with diluted purple and pearl so that I could get a sense of texture and the drips from the heart.
3. Wrote the lyrics from one of my favourite bands I loved in my youth.
4. Inked around the edges and added a freehand line to frame the heart.
