I'd come up with this idea while I was doodling one night. Once I got the sketch to my liking, I made a bunch of copies of it and made them my own little coloring pages. Then, I brought out the colored pencils, flipped on Modern Family, and came up with a color scheme.
Next, I sketched it out on canvas. I hate this part the most. I always get nervous before sketching on canvas. What if I just don't have it today? I don't know why I work myself up about it. So what if I mess up a canvas? They're not that expensive. Maybe it's because they're so big and seem so official that I hate to ruin one. This time it wasn't one of my best days, so I had to drag out the dreaded eraser. Will they ever make an eraser that actually erases instead of smears? I've tried them all, and still I prefer a good old pencil eraser to the "artist erasers"...too bad they only last about 10 swipes before they're down to the knub. Ugh.

And then, ta da!
This one was pretty easy to do, so it didn't take me much time at all. Whenever I do the sketching and coloring on paper first, I'm usually so sick of it that by the time I get to painting I just want to get it over with. I don't want to have to look at it anymore! But I'm pretty happy with this one and now I have another original piece to bug Disney with :)
