Mother Nature is teasing us here. We had a few beautiful warm days and now we are set to drop 30 degrees overnight!! Hopefully, it won’t last long and we can break out the shorts soon. I love the idea of using the little plastic children’s animal toys as models. Roz Stendahl posted about it on her blog so I dug up some of the kiddo’s and bought a few of my own. Perfect, they don’t move or take up much room and are always willing to pose for a drawing.
My Valentine’s day roses are wilting, but they still make for interesting drawing models. The ink I used for this direct ink drawing is by J. Herbin and is rose scented. It is definitely something I will buy again, it makes a neat writing ink (I couldn’t resist doing DH’s Valentine’s card with it).
