Started creating a new illustration last night for Illustration Friday's prompt "ice". I'm posting the sketch before I add any color.
I'm not looking forward ice and snow! Last night we had the first frost of the season. Fortunately, the day turned out beautiful, and I was able to get out for a walk with a friend after work. The foliage is almost at peak, and even after a drought this summer, the colors are still brilliant.
I am an art teacher who loves to draw and paint, as well as illustrate for children. I also enjoy printmaking---especially block prints. Whatever I do as an artist, I have to remind myself---no pressure---it all starts by just putting pencil to paper.
