Summer Sketching: A Pool for the Pixies


Earlier in the summer we had a lot of rain, and one morning I wandered out into my garden, tea cup in hand and no shoes to be found.  I often do this in the early morning before everyone stirs.  Well, this particular morning I was amazed to see this huge and fabulous mushrooms sprouting up on the front lawn.  Their cups were upturned and each of them was filled with rainwater.  It looked so amazing, I swear if I didn't know better there would have been pixies running around having a pool party.  After I sketched one I tried to find out what type of mushroom it was, but for the life of me I couldn't find anything like it.  If you know what type of mushroom it is, please let me know. This sketch was done mostly in watercolor pencil with a splash of paint.



Don't forget that the Mastering Twinks Classes (Part 1 & Part 2) are on sale for a very special combined price until August 24th.




Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by. xx
