An ode to pregnancy

I  was finally able to try an adult coloring book. I did a page with an illustration of Japanese lanterns hung up on a garden. The details are so elaborate and it took me a day to finished it. It was a way to distress for some people but I found it stressing as I colored small details and tried to make the shading of the colors even. I wanted to stop but I can’t leave it unfinished. I was telling myself not to do it again as I was coloring. I’ll rather draw, paint or color Sam’s coloring books.

To prove myself that it is better to draw, this morning, I grabbed my untouched canvass pad that I bought a few years ago and a pencil. I looked for pregnant women’s photos in the internet for inspiration and started to draw. After almost three hours, taaddaaa! Here’s my artwork. It’s simple but I was so happy with the outcome since I can’t even remember the last time I drew or painted. A good alternative for photography.
