Experimenting

I’ve been working on some landscapes. Well, experimenting with them would be more accurate. I’ve been concentrating on using colored pencils for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that they are much more convenient for me to use – no prep time and no clean up which is very handy when caregiving. I’ll be adding mineral spirits to my arsenal tomorrow and see how that will affect my drawings. I can’t wait to give it a try. I’m also working on incorporating the tooth of the paper (the paper’s texture) into the finished piece of art. I love the soft look I can get with that. I’m looking forward to sharing some new pieces in the days to come!

Antique Americana Cow Kitty in Colored Pencil

This is the second in a series celebrating my love of quilting, sewing, and other needle arts – things to which I was introduced at a very young age.  This kitty was born out of a very fond memory of a variety of patchwork cats I had made quite a few years ago. But rather than coming to life in fabric, this kitty is drawn in colored pencil on 100 lb. paper.  The uncropped piece is 6″ x 9″. I have left an ample border around the drawing so it can be matted and framed with ease. The cropped image size is 5″ x 8″.  $20
