Strawberry Fields Forever

The best way to get back into drawing and painting after a hiatus, in my opinion, is to do a quick contour drawing. 
I used to have so much fun doing these simple technique building activities with my 
Drawing students of all levels;
the trick is to not look at your paper when you are drawing something (look at the object)...and to take it a step further, make one continuous line by not picking up your drawing tool.
Try it!

Here, I did peak at the paper for composition sake, 
and then used simple gouache paint and fine tip markers for pops of color.

Can you follow the line in each section?!

Wouldn't this look pretty in a little girl's room!?
