Creating a slightly surreal composition like this one took a lot of energy and thought power. I had to conceptualize how I would have the dreamcatcher hanging out of the sky, and then I used a real world photo as inspiration for my colored pencil drawing.
The photograph that inspired my drawing was a sunflower captured up in the San Bernardino Mountains with Mount Baldy in the distance. The video below details how I created this illustration from start to finish.
Legends say dreamcatchers will catch your bad dreams, and I like to think that. There is something to be said for the power of positive thought, and this is something I choose to live by in my creative process.
