The finished sketch
This was a lot of fun to do. I also drew quite a few pigs. I do wish I could do these things quickly. Hours later it's done. I won't use my regular moleskine again for watercolor. I forgot how badly it behaved with watercolor.
Before the watercolor
I used pitt pens on it at this stage.
Double page spread in my regular large moleskine.
I don't remember anything about my first day of school other than I had a book bag. Kindergarten was a long time ago.
I am sure my mother dressed me in Mary Janes, ankle socks, white shirt with a Peter Pan collar and a plaid skirt with suspenders. I am also sure my unruly curly hair was waving or frizzing despite moms best efforts.. I was the smallest child always in school. I started first grade in a 4T!! Really!!
I did go back over the finished sketch with my pentel brush pen. I found a couple of packs of cartridges when I was cleaning out the drawer looking for my camera battery charger.
