Nan's Art Adventures

Join me while I explore watercolor and sketching! I'm new to this, having never thought of myself as "artistic"! (I'm having a blast, as I learn!)

30 years in dentistry lead to early retirement, to be my husband's caregiver. He passed away February 10th, 2008. I am thankful I found art then, as it continues to help me now.

Curling Leaf

Our weather is cool now without much sunshine, so I'm in the mood for posting another "Fall Leaf" sketch. I tried to incorporate the same techniques I used in my previous entry--near and far, and curls and points, being accentuated using light and dark. I used graphite and Prismacolor Pencils.

Thanks for your comments on flickr, much appreciated. Also I'd never heard of the dirty chamois technique...must try it!

Nancy, that's really nice. Well, hello Nad, fancy meeting you here! The world is getting smaller. Back to Nancy. I love the colored leaf best of all.

It has been such a while since I have done some sketching, I might give this a try! Can't wait to see more of your work!
