Saturday is a great day for art making!

Okay, so not ALL Saturdays are good for art making, but today was! In addition to cleaning my living room, writing a new squidoo lens (I'll be showing it off on Monday for the project of the week!), making a super-secret holiday project for a future project of the week, and taking a walk, I re-watched "Pan's Labryinth" on Netflix while I finished up this drawing I've been working on. Whew! Are you tired from reading all of that, because I am tired from doing it! :)

The above drawing is in watercolor, colored pencil, and ebony pencil on paper. It measures about 8.5" x 8 7/8." Lately I have been needing a boost in creativity and motivation, and switching to a medium (or mediums, more like it!) that I haven't worked in for awhile is doing the trick. I am really enjoying the looseness of watercolor layered with the more exact look of pencils. This drawing is even better in person--my scanner didn't catch the wonderful shininess of the black ebony pencil.
