Idle


Idle, originally uploaded by sapphire252.

This week's prompt for Illustration Friday was "idle". I found this great quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and it was perfect for what I wanted to do...watercolours, a fine line black pen, and a white gel pen were my tools of choice.

Beautiful and totally deep in meaning! :) I love the light blue tones used here, and the texts styles are very catchy.
