A is for ....


I've finished a spread in my journal for the letter A. I hope to do the whole alphabet. I also hope to find things I like to fit the different letters. Some of them might be rather hard like Q and Z. Maybe I'll just buy some more pets and give them weird names so I have something I will like for every letter! No way! I really wouldn't do that.
I used pencil to draw with and then drew over that with Pitt pens. Then I used watercolor pencils which I wet down with a water brush.

  5. Personally I think wonderful shoud have 2 l's - to emphasize the fullness of the wonder. What a great idea for a drawing, especially when one feels stuck (like I'm starting to feel)... really nice subtleties in the color too especially in the apple. I love it!
