Textures In Nature

I’m a little behind… well, actually A LOT behind with Carla Sonheim’s 365 daily art class but rather than stress about it, I just do an assignment when I can.

Yesterday, I did this one when I was at the lake with ink pen.  Our assignment was to draw textures around us so I chose nature.


I added a little watercolor to spice things up a bit:


Did you notice the dead mosquito?  There seemed to be PLENTY of them this weekend…

Cheers! 🙂
