I’ve modified the color for the line drawing of last week’s prompt, “Idle.”

I’m happy that it only took me a couple of days! With my schedule, I need to modify, to enjoy the worthwhile things in life!

Please let me know which you like better, the line drawing (posted below this post) or mixed media color (this post)!

Happy Week!

  1. I like them both!!! The coloured one has a different kind of charm to it. I could see this in a children’s book, and I love his flower hat/cap……hmmmm….I think I’ll go for the coloured version…..but I do like the black and white one too…….hehehe can’t decide!!!

  3. They are both great. I like the coloured version just a tad more, and find the colours really adding to the attraction.

  4. I like the colored drawing. It’s really sweet and I love the drawing style.

  5. I think I like the black and white one better. They’re both sweet, but the plain one is simpler, more unified.

  6. Hi Indigene, Thanks for the nice comment on my blog! I like both. The line work is nice because you can admire it’s simplicity. But it’s also nice when added color to a piece…. it brings it to life. :)

  10. I like them both, but I am partial to the colored version. I just love the palette.
    Thanks for stopping by my little neck of the woods. Have a great day, would you please? :)

  11. More fun and happy of course! I like this charming polar bear!

  12. Aww…this is so sweet! I like both of them but gearing towards the coloured one, because you’ve chosen such pretty colours! Nice work:-)

  13. I can’t decide which one I like more, since they are both great. I love looking at line art in general, since you can see details like the darkness and thickness of the lines, but colored art is interesting too, especially for light, shadows, and coloring technique. If I was forced to pick one though, like if my life depended on it, I’d go with the colored piece. Mainly for the cool bath hat and the light from the candles. I love how you have a book on the floor next to the tub; it creates a nice, relaxing atmosphere. :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  14. Cute illustration! Seems like it might be part of a book. . .feel like there is really a story behind it.

  15. So cute! My husband is pouring himself a bath this very moment….He JUST beat me to it! Now I’m stuck on the computer till it’s my turn!

  16. I think the colours give it a more whimsical feel and for this style I think it’s better but both are lovely

  17. I’m a busy mum so I think every work of art is great as we had put in our time and effort to complete it.

    Comment by serline — August 4, 2009 @ 11:01 pm

  18. Both are lovely; I like seeing line drawings because you can see the details really clearly and it’s all very clean. But i really like the colors you used for this week’s drawing too. It makes it very warm, sweet, and complete. Thanks for your comments!

  19. it looks even better in colour!

    Comment by yati davies — August 5, 2009 @ 1:59 am

  20. Thank you so much for your comments! I love both the coloured and the line version of your illustration – I can’t decide, but would probably chose the line drawing. Very cute and a great idea!

    Comment by Hannah — August 5, 2009 @ 7:38 am

  21. I love both! as both of them are really nice in their own right!

    Comment by owl eng — August 5, 2009 @ 9:22 am

  22. I’m terrible at decisions but I like them both. I often do black & white drawings & colour them in another time and I usually like the coloured ones best. By the way thanks for comments about my offerings.

    Comment by Linda Calverley — August 5, 2009 @ 10:15 am

  23. Oh, way too hard to choose! I love them both for different reasons. What a darling image! SO cute in black and white, and the color version gives a totally different feel to it. Love them!

    Comment by candace trew camling — August 5, 2009 @ 9:29 pm

  29. What a sweet illustration – I like the coloured version but I’ll go with the line drawing – simple and clean!

  30. Hey there, hon! I have an award for you on my blog. Stop by when you get a chance.

  31. Wow! Love the colour version too.
    So much fun after colours have been added in!
    That’s what a saying, “Colour spice up your life!”

    Thanks, Indigene, you have a good rest.
    Happy days and happy weekends!

  32. They’re both lovely, but I like the simplicity of line drawings.

    FYI – I’m giving your wonderful blog the Bella Sinclair Award. Thanks for all of your blog visits!

  34. Thanks for visiting my blog & for the really nice comments, my soul sister. I totally dig your bear in the bath. She seems to know how to live the good life. So after the week at work that I’ve had, I think I need to be like the bear & make my own heaven on earth ;-) Nice work. Keep it up.

    Comment by Laura Marsh — August 6, 2009 @ 12:04 pm

  35. I like this one. Color is like music.

    Comment by drawforjoy — August 7, 2009 @ 9:29 am

  36. On one, the colours are so lively and happy and I think that surely this one must be a fave! But then I do like linedrawings… So I go back to check again… and forth… ;) sorry, but even though they’re exactly the same draing, they communicate such different things. I jsut couldn’t possibly chosoe without putting them in a specific context. Either way – lovely!: :)

    Comment by Nancy — August 7, 2009 @ 1:25 pm

  37. Great minds think alike! :-)
    I like them both too, but I think the line drawing is my favorite. The color piece is lively and fun, but as you know I love the look of a simple, clean line.

    Comment by Monica — August 7, 2009 @ 8:20 pm

  38. I like them both! I love the simplicity of the line drawing, but then I’m a bit ‘line biased’. : )
    Boy oh boy wouldn’t I love to be in his furry shoes, a hot soaky bath sounds devine to me.

    Comment by Alisa — August 8, 2009 @ 12:57 am

  39. Although I love line drawings, I like the color version best. Your illustration brings back memories for me. As a teen ager, I spent a lot of time in the bath tub. No time for that now!

    Comment by Laurel — August 9, 2009 @ 10:58 pm

  40. Sweet image and wonderfulful colors. I do love a good bath it helps you modify your mood. Beautiful job!
