The lost spring finally found us.It was so warm and spring like yesterday.The day was full of outdoor fun and a lot of first time things happened.For the first time we went on a long bike ride,eight miles.It was Hurby's first time outdoors for this year and Scruffy's first time out in his entire life.He was a little bit scared at the beginning but then he loved it and was hopping around the pen from joy.Yesterday I spotted the first miniature irises in our garden.Pretty!
My submission for this week's topic Wild is a simple study of a fox.I am not very good at drawing wild animals so this was one good opportunity to improve.I used a regular #2 pencil and watercolor pencils.
Winter Wonderland in April???Yea , on April 12!I think the spring got lost in Antarctica.I am tired waiting for it,this year.The warm weather comes to tease us for a couple days and then the polar bears come down from Canada again bringing snow and ice.Well,what can we do?The last four pictures are from a week ago.My kid and I took a nice walk enjoying the warm weather taking tons of pictures and having lots of fun.The puddle is heart shaped!Can you see that?And the purple crocuses bloom in our garden.Their color is sooo beautiful!Can you spot the little birdie in the first picture?
This week's topic is URBAN.I managed to draw two illustrations again.For the first one I used as a reference one of my own pictures that I took in Bulgaria about five years ago.The little girl was my daughter and the other people were just strangers.For the second one I used a picture a friend of mine has taken on a trip to Paris.In both drawings I used ink pen and watercolor pencils.
I almost missed to post an illustration for this week's topic.I was too busy but anyway yesterday I managed to do the drawing and today /after work/ I am posting it.I am so glad that I decided to participate in Illustration Friday.It keeps me so motivated and actually I do draw!!!Every Friday I can't wait to find out what the next topic is going to be.
