Scribble Picnic (Fox & Apologies!)

Hello! First off, to my wonderful Sunday Sketches peeps...I am SO SORRY! I left town unexpectedly and simply forgot to schedule my post for our weekly art co-op. For those of you who don't know, the older sister I never met found our family and I'm currently in southern Kentucky meeting her and visiting other family members I've not seen in 9+ years! I'm here through this coming Sunday, so hopefully, I'll get something posted and get us back on track.

Above is my contribution for this week's Scribble Picnic theme, FOX. Due to being on the road, I sketched this little guy in my 6"x6" sketchbook and colored it in with my set of Tombow brush pens. I love how they give off the feeling of a watercolor illustration. This morning, I spent some time with my niece at a fabulous coffee shop here Campbellsville, KY doing art and it was utterly fun. In fact, here's a peek at her contribution to Scribble Picnic. She did a wonderful job!

OK. It's 77 here in Kentucky and perfect weather for Michael's picnic. I'm grabbing my flip-flops and picnic basket....see you all very soon - and save me some cherry pie!!

  11. Alexandra,
    I love it especially the necker - that's what they give our small dog after a grooming. He looks curious and impish. I wonder what he is up to?

  13. It is ONE UNIQUE and INCREDIBLE xp you are having down there! No wonder you forgot about Sunday Sketches!

    As is is, we are so lucky to have your piece here. It looks great. Already commented on your IG but I am amazed at how good those brushes are-- really pulls you into that rich colour. Your fox is adorable as is Autumn's! Thank you so much to both of you.

  15. wow, how wonderful that you are meeting your older sister and seeing other relatives.

    I think it is fun doing art with friends and family.
    Both these pieces are wonderful. Your fox is fun and foxy. The other one has a great cartoon feeling to it.
