Okay so I lied. In my earlier post I was going to do “Three French Hens” next, but it was just this morning that I had an epiphany on how to draw “Two Turtle Doves.” Amazing how your most brilliant ideas surface when you are on the potty. I know, sorry TMI. Well we all receive our ideas in different ways.
I started sketching stuff out while sitting on the front porch later this morning. My plan was to sketch “Two Turtle Doves” and “Three French Hens.” After I finished sketching the doves however, I just wanted to delve into the final piece right then.
For awhile I had planned to have the doves wearing turtle shells to reflect the play on words, but then I later thought, wouldn’t it be funny to have them confronted by two angry, half-naked turtles wondering why these birds are wearing their clothes?
I hope to have this drawing wrapped up soon. Until then, here is my preliminary sketch. It’s nice to draw something that you are excited about.
