Chinese Lantern Plant and Thanksgiving...nothing in common.

`

"Fall-ing Lanterns" copyright Judith Nijholt-Strong
8" x 8" approx., colored pencils with pen & ink

Well nothing in common, really, except maybe that the little "Chinese Lanterns" on the plant look like pumpkins (sort of) and they remind me of Thanksgiving.

This drawing was done with Lyra Rembrandt colored pencils, Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils (which are both oil-based colored pencils) and black Sigma Micron ink pens. I don't know what paper I used, as there was no watermark on it ... perhaps Arches, but I'm not sure.

Oh yeah, Happy Thanksgiving to my friends and family in the USA, The Netherlands and wherever in the world you are.

Eet Smakelijk! :0)
(bon appétit ! enjoy your meal!)

doei (bye)
Judy
