Kit and Clowder Create and Learn Sept 2015

The pencil Create and Learn Class featured one of the Mo Manning tots on a trike.  I chose the little "bye bye" girl with pigtails.  We were to build in a background and add trees to our project, and to put the trike on a path going into the picture.  We don't have big trees in the desert, so I geared my little girl on a trike going down a backroad near Snow Valley Utah where I took a picture of the odd pancake shaped sandstone rocks in the area.  I created Palm Trees, though there aren't any there--there are Joshua trees there, but I didn't think I could draw a Joshua tree.  The assignment is worked in Prismacolor pencils at "sketch" coverage, not a deep waxy finish.   This was fun, challenging and different to do.  I am not much "into" backgrounds for the artwork of others, but tips on color, perspective, and such was fun for this Create and Learn  Class.  Thank you Alyce for the fun lesson this month.
