It's Raining Rose Hips ...








 








drawing copyright Judith Nijholt-Strong
Raining Rose Hips, 2010
approx. size: 7.5"h x 4.5"w
Pen & Ink, Colored Pencils on paper.

No, it's not really "raining rose hips" here, but it is raining, a lot, and I'm getting sort of tired of it. I actually like rainy days, for the most part, but lately it's been endless ... rain or rainy mist all day long, for weeks on end.

All  the rose hips have pretty much fallen on the ground from my rose bushes, along with the leaves, so  I picked some up and brought them inside to draw. It is way too wet and cold outside to draw. And the result? Very "stylized" rose hips! :o)

For this piece I used:
  • Sakura Pigma Micron Pens (black ink)
  • Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils
  •  Lyra Rembrandt colored pencils
  • Strathmore Bristol paper
tot ziens,
Judy

Thanks Meisie!
Too bad I left the pottery business years ago *sigh*...
Guess you can take the girl out of the pottery designing bussiness but you can't take the desire to design out of the girl! lol
