Ivy

As I type, Bootz the cat is sprawling upon my desk, watching each keystroke I make with GREAT interest.  We shall see how far I get before she attacks my fingers, or the keyboard! 

This is another of the drawings I created on our trip to Spokane.  I used Prismacolor pencils to add these brilliant colors.  My problem was that I used a different brand of ink pens.  The colored pencils caused the ink to smear into her delicate peach complection.  My solution was to add ivy leaves onto her face to create a more surreal effect.

You won't believe this, but Bootz the cat is playing with the, er, mouse.  Tch tch tch--as I type these words, the mouse pointer icon is wildly swinging over the monitor screen!

Have a perfectly wonderful Monday!

I like the ivy leaves on her face - well done! Isn't it wonderful when "mistakes" can lead us into pleasant, new directions? And I must say, your nature pieces make me feel like I've fallen into another world. Wonderful :)

Ivy is beautiful! You found the perfect solution for fixing the smudges. Glad you finished your post before Bootz finished your mouse! You two make me giggle.

Lovely picture. And that game of cat and mouse creates a lovely picture in my mind as well.

there is so much to learn about each medium. I love your solution, wildly fun, as your kitty sounds too.

that is what I like, making what could be a disaster into an inspiration!
