Trees in colored pencil



For a change of pace, I decided to draw some trees in colored pencil. I started out with a sketch on Canson Mi-Tienes drawing paper. Wonderful surface to draw on. The slowly I have been adding color. Threw my back out yesterday so I may not finish this for a few more days. I like the way it's coming along!

Mobile

Finished this today for my hubby! Our anniversary is tomorrow! I'll post a video if I can figure out how too. Now I have to figure out where I can hang it so the cats won't play with it and tear it down!

More Valentine's Day artwork

I created this small piece for my husband for our 12th Anniversary, which is Valentine's Day. Each year I make him some "heart" based artwork, a different medium each year. So this year, I'm doing 12 hearts as a mobile. Hope I can get it to balance! If anyone has any tips to make that happen, let me know. I'm thinking of using driftwood for the top, and fishing line to connect the pieces. This is on mat board, gessoed and stamped with acrylics, then I drilled holes into it to attached an antique pull and a couple dice turned to 12!
