Doodle in Pencil
Here is a doodle of a dog, a worm, and a butterfly sitting in their serene backyard.
I started another pencil doodle last night that I still need to finish.
Today I went to the library and found some books about children’s book illustrators; also a book about Beatrix Potter. I have a couple of books about her art ordered from Amazon that should come this week. But this is a biography called “Beatrix Potter – Artist, Storyteller and Countrywoman” by Judy Taylor published in 1986. It is a good readable length that will not feel daunting.
I really love her art, because she drew so much from life which shows in her style.
I draw from pictures or out of my imagination mostly because the fish hatchery where I live doesn’t have a huge variety of plants, trees and animals. Deer and turkeys are what we see most. Although a couple of months ago I got a picture of a jack rabbit. We have been here since 2001, and that is the first one I had ever seen right at the end of our driveway and happened to have my phone on me. I haven’t drawn it yet, though.
I hope all of my American friends had a nice Thanksgiving weekend. Ours was fun. Both of our kids were here as well as our daughter’s boyfriend. Our son played a few songs on his new ukulele which was fun to listen to. He plays well!
Have a good day, and give someone you love a big hug! 😀
