Kind Hearts And Go-To Shapes

Hearts are one of my favourite motifs, it is my Go-To shape, I return to them again and again in my art. There is something about the shape and form of the heart symbol that works so well in so many compositions. Then you have all the different emotions that the heart symbol embodies and can give to a piece.

I have a random heart to show today, it was an unplanned, growing with the moment, card I made in my Kuretake demo a few weeks ago.

It is random in that I had no idea for the final look for the card, which is unusual for me, I often spend a little bit of time sketching out my ideas before starting. I knew that I wanted to demonstrate some watercolour washes using the ZIG Art and Grapic Twin Watercolour Pens and the ZIG Watercolour System BrusH2Os.

So I freeform created this little Clean and Simple Card with the details added in with a ZIG Writer pen and my Go-To shape a little heart.

Do you have a Go-To shape? Something you use in your art, that you revisit many times?

I have another demo this weekend, this one is in the Basildon Hobbycraft, Saturday 15th September from 10am to 4pm, hope to see you there for some random creating from my heart!
