Working with a random limited palette of Derwent Inktense pencils, an Under the Sea theme, and a bowl of oatmeal with sliced apples.
First go was a bit realistic. I didn't leave room for journaling!
The second try was drawn first and then lettering added. Sort of simple and cartoon-like.
And one more. I wrote the quote first, and then decorated around it. I think this one is the most fun!
