Handy Pencil

It seemed like time for a change from watercolour and flowers. But what do you draw when you don’t know what to draw? For me it’s sometimes what’s right in front of me, no questions asked – in this case, my right hand. I furnished it with a pencil for a prop, even though it wouldn’t know what to do with one. It’s good to accessorise, right?

I really enjoyed taking a rough-and-ready approach to this, just getting stuck in with the colours and not worrying too much about the outcome. In short, having fun. And that’s what it’s all about.

  1. I love the detail in this!

    You said I should not feel obligated to nominate you for the Versatile Blogger Award. I nominated you anyway because I think you create some beautiful art–obligation had no part in it. I hope that’s okay!

    • Thank you so much. I like to mix it up a bit with the paper, it makes you think a little differently, which is good when you’ve been working on a pale background for a while. Variety is the spice of life! πŸ™‚
