Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.

Drawing and Watercoloring just for the fun of it
My dear friend, Bren gave me her book that she used several years ago to learn to draw. I am reading the book and have gathered my supplies. It seems like I never have the time to just enjoy doing some art. So last night I was just itching to get started so I found a drawing that I liked of a frog and got started. This is a postcard for a friend that always makes me laugh so I wanted my drawing to be lighthearted. I was also influnced to do some watercolors after watching the Strathmore art workshop videos. My drawing is a long way from perfect but I am just starting out without any formal training and just starting to read Bren's book so I was very pleased with it. I hope my friend, Kathy enjoys it.
Here is the original drawing in a book of the frog.
