Yesterday was my 24th wedding anniversary! I got to go out to lunch with my dear hubby and this weekend we'll get to get out of town for a weekend away! I'm so excited. :)

Today I had an idea about painting a frog image. So, here it is! Pen and ink with Watercolor pencil (albrecht durer wc pencils) I'm pretty happy with it. I need more contrast but I didn't want to over work the frog and lose the highlight areas. I have lots to learn still. But that's why we practice.

I hope you all have a great rest of the week!
Cheers, SB
