St. Patrick’s Day

It’s time once again for me to share some art. I had high hopes of having more than just one tile to share today but I got busy doing other things and it just didn’t happen. :D

iamthedivacztSaint Patrick’s Day is this week and thus the diva challenge is “Touch of Irish.” I think I went with a shamrock as my string last year because that is what I first thought to do this year. :D Consequently, I tried to come up with something else. So I thought I’d do a foreground and make some shamrock “holes” in it.

I drew the small shamrocks first and proceeded to make them the foreground instead of the background. Oops! Oh well . . . I could have erased the shading and changed it but I can never get all the graphite completely removed; so I just went with it.

I like MacDee and always think it is Irish-like but I guess it is really more Scottish-like . . . oops again! :D LOL I used it anyway, on half of the background and used knightsbridge on the other half. Then after I drew both background tangles I felt like MacDee was missing something, so I did a variation of knightsbridge, in gray, in the squares of MacDee.

Well, that’s my process, so here’s the tile.

Thanks to all who posted comments last week. Comments are so encouraging and very appreciated! Thanks in advance to any who take the time to comment on this post as well. :)

I hope you have a great week and a happy St. Patrick’s Day. BTW, did you know that it is said that St. Patrick used the 3-leaf clover to explain the Holy Trinity (God = Father, Son, and Holy Ghost)? I thought it was an interesting tidbit.

Until next time, God bless,

  1. I loved hearing about your process, the shamrock holes becoming the foreground made me laugh. If my black pens leave holes when I am colouring in I often go over it with black coloured pencils.
