My first post on my first blog

This is my first attempt at blogging.  I guess I will display my most recent artwork…Two munchkins

I drew it on the inside of a card after my very brief message because I am not good at writing a lot of stuff in a card.  I used either a 005 or 01 Micron pen (can’t remember) and watercolours (Winsor & Newton Cotman, and Grumbacher).  I also masked the white areas on the mushroom with Winsor & Newton’s permanent masking fluid.  I made the card from a 9 x 12 sheet of Strathmore’s 140 lb cold press watercolour paper.  I cut it down to 8.5 x 11, so folded, it would fit into the 5.75 x 8.75 envelopes that I have. 

This is a card for my sister, and the two wee ones are inspired by her two children.
