Bought these pretty little crayons at Borders the other day, along with a tiny sketchbook. Just for fun. Thought I'd have it with me to just do little quick sketches during the day. Everyone's been doing self portraits and had that on my mind.
Timber was sleeping very still on the floor by me this morning so decided to do a quickie of him. The crayons are triangular shaped and kind of waxy. You have to get used to them, but they give quite a soft look. I kind of like them!
Took the stuff upstairs with me and decided to look in the mirror and give it a try. Another quickie. haha! I guess I look like I am mad at the mirror.
My love of nature and love of paper have influenced my love of drawing, painting and making things for as long as I can remember. For me, there is excitement in the visual pleasure I get from copying the beauty of nature. The colors. The gentleness. With my artwork, I seek to inspire and enlighten the viewer.
