Hello folks, it has been awhile since I was on and posting anything.  I'm trying to come up with some art for a children's book I am calling "Debbies Shells"
This is what I have now, please give your opinion on them. Thanks!

Hey, I have some new drawings & hope you will all take a peek!  On these I used a drawing program & had fun playing around with a totally different, unfamiliar medium!

I am always trying out new ways of drawing. I  love  zentangles and also use a drawing program called Scribbler Too. I'll be putting up some of my work in these mediums in the next few days. I would love to try water color painting, so am open to tips/help in this medium.

 

Happy weekend all!

Thank you all for the wonderful welcome!  I'm not  a professional drawer, but love it anyway. I  write both stories , articles for children, and love drawing pictures for  my stories.  Very happy to have found  place to share them. I am looking forward to learning more about drawing, hope to learn to use some new mediums in future.
