Illustration Friday "Entangled"

I ended up with three versions of "Entangled" this week.

The first one I almost trashed but it ended up being a learning experience. I added the blue background and what I thought was a permanent black pen for the yarn turned out to not be and I went back in with white goache and I was satisfied with the result.

Then I redid it and liked my second version better.

And then I mistakenly scanned it in black and white and I think this one is my favorite maybe because I don't usually work monochromatically. A fun afternoon of painting.

Kathy, it's a lovely image -- and I like the 2nd one best too (tho they are all wonderful, really). Funny, we both gravitated to the red ball of yarn. Love this post of yours!

I have a cat and a beagle. The two become entangled often. Beagle thinks it is a person, cat thinks it is a beagle. Beautiful rendering
