It hasn't been easy for me to get going again. However, I did do a couple of small projects. The owl was done in my favorite Copic markers and black ink. The watercolor background gave me a chance to play with one of my Christmas presents - Peerless watercolor papers. They are lovely and vibrant (more so than my picture) and they do blend beautifully. The third picture is of a pen sketch of a baby cup given to my dh when he was born and colored with gray and black Conte crayon - a tough coloring medium for me. I colored and then used my eraser to create some highlights. The sketch was done in different lighting and from a slightly different angle. I am looking forward to registering for Life Book 2013. I think I need a big something to get me painting again. I plan to take a couple of live courses in 2013 as well. Thanks for stopping by and I love to hear what you have to say so leave a comment if you can.
