Desert Island Discs CJ - Sonja
This is my entry for Sonja's Desert Island Disc CJ. There were a couple of songs I would have liked to do but finally settled on Your Song by Elton John. Sonja's notes say she remembers this song from Christmas time a while back and that she was heavily pregnant at the time. It is also her son's song as she played it a lot when he was born. I tried to draw a mother and baby but it was hopeless, so I had to resort to the trusty internet I'm afraid. I found a perfect picture, it had a wintery background which can be seen through the mum and baby. I coloured this in with a mix of watercolour pencils, neocolors and skin tone pastels. The background is neocolor II, sprayed with pearl cosmic shimmer, acrylic paint snowflakes and a tissue paper 'tree' - I also added a line from the song, printed onto Safmat then stuck on. Hope it is ok. For the previous entries in the CJ - I didn't add to Sonja's but I added embossed stars to Nigel's.
