Fun on a colored sheet.

The boldness of  brightly colored paper fascinates! Can't resist making a figure using a few color pencils and some quick strokes. A design starts to emerge. It seems compact and complete, I don't like leaving open ends of color. I'd love to print that on a T shirt, it would look 'cool' as my kids would say. May be I'll have fun this week just with my color pencils!
Looking again at the design, it reminds me strongly of the mythological tale of the birth of the River Ganga, which I remember reading years ago.Ganga emerges from the head of the god Shiva cascading to earth in all her glory. Well the drama of the event is missing in this quick sketch.
