Today’s drawing came about in an interesting way. Last week my husband saw a mouse lying on our garage floor…dead of course. It didn’t look like it had been injured; it just looked like it died of natural causes! He never picked it up and tossed it out into the field and forgot about it. With the weather being so cold, it didn’t smell or anything either.
Well, I just remembered it this morning. So I went out to the garage, grabbed a rag, and picked it up. I brought it in so I could draw it. It was so CUTE!!! My husband walked in for his work break and said, “Well, I never thought I would see that!” 😉
I don’t often draw from “life” (or death in this case), but I just couldn’t resist. I put it on the table, so I drew it from a weird angle. Anyway, here is my ‘model mouse.’ I will probably draw it in a different pose from my imagination with my Prismacolor watercolor pencils. Its coat had several shades of brown and white which was very pretty.
Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂
