TREE SKETCH

 I've been playing around with this tree in my sketch book.  I still really love my "Bottle Of Ink In A Pencil" pencil.

Just add water and shade.  The difference between this pencil and a watercolor pencil is it doesn't totally wash away like a watercolor pencil.  It keeps some of the hard line.

Happy SS! 


Okay so this cave is made out of PAPER! hehe  I'm sharing this for the cool Paper Saturday's on Manonpopje's Art blog.  This cave or tomb was for an Easter performance we had at Church.  I wish I had the finished pictures.  The play was so moving, I cried...I NEVER cry!!  Anyway check out Paper Saturday's I LOVE her stuff!!

I forgot to post the finished painting on my blog! SO here it is...hooray!  I used yellow pearl ink on some of the balls instead of glitter.  Andy (my 15yr old son) thinks glitter is for nine year olds. haha  What do you think?

I lOVE your tree paintings, and that cave for the play looks amazing. I don't think glitter is just for kids either, and your piece is proof. Blessings!
