wooden bracelet sketching
I bought a wooden bracelet at the craft store the other day. It was so smooth I felt it to be a crime to paint on it. I got out my black ink pen and began to draw. Free hand, no sketching out ideas ahead of time. I just let the lines go where they wanted to. Then, when the black lines were complete, I colored it in using pencil crayons. I topped it off with a clear gloss varnish. The image is of a girl holding an orange cat. Her long patterned skirt going all the way around with her little red shoes almost meeting her head.
