Iris bud

I have been sort of obcessed with my Irises this spring. I decided to try drawing a bud with colored pencils. I like colored pencils but I haven't done much with them. They are easy to use as you don't need water to mix like with watercolr paints. I wish I had lots more colored pencils. I have a 24pack of Prismacolor pencils. I don't know how to mix the colors i have to create colors I want. I know...practice. I need to do this more.

Animal Wednesday - Snickers

Snickers is my Grands cat. She sits on this chair often during the day and watches for any birdies or other entertainment to come her way. It is a pencil drawing that I attempted after visiting with them last year. Snickers is such a sweet cat. She allows all the "love" that the Grands can dish out to her.

Animal Wednesday - Brown Creeper

You will probably find that I like birds a lot. I have several drawings of birds. This is a Brown Creeper. I drew this picture from Mon@rch's blog. He has beautiful wildlife pictures. A lot of them are birds too. This was my first attempt at drawing a hand, or at least part of a hand.
