A few more from a life drawing session of a model posing as Madonna and Child. The first is again chalk & conte crayon on toned pastel paper, the second is more a line drawing in prisma pencil on toned paper.
My newest notecard is a little squirrel, bedecked with an elf hat for the holidays, skipping happily to a scherzo he’s playing on his violin. A scherzo is a piece played ‘jestingly’ or ‘whimsically,’ just what I intended for this little fiddler. I started with a pencil sketch –
then transferred it to illustration board, where I drew it in prisma pencil and painted it in acrylic paint washes.
These notecards, like the others in my collection, come 8 cards and envelopes to a pack and are blank inside. They are printed in the USA and made with partially recycled paper. Since I had the holidays in mind when I drew this little fellow, I also printed some cards with a message on the front –
They are both available on my Etsy site, just click here.
