Pen and Ink...and maybe some paint

Sunday Sketches

Today (Saturday) I've done a little bit of art. For the "29 Faces Challenge" at Ayala Art I drew this little fairy gal as my fifth face. It's pen and ink with colored pencil.


I also did some painting with my gouache paints to decorate a large envelope that I'm sending to my art buddy, Pom Pom! It was fun decorating something that will pass through so many  hands on its way to it's creative destination!





Mostly just having fun with my new paints! Hope your having a great week of art!

  2. Woo hoo! I can't wait! Four more weeks and your art buddy will start sending you stuff! I am pretty ready for school to be over so I can sit at my art table and mess around!
    That first face is Alice in Wonderland!
    I bought a fat little Golden book today and I thought of you as I perused the lovely illustrations.
