In Aya's Pocket: Still Life with Unicorn and Craquelure Vase

In Aya's Pocket: Still Life with Unicorn and Craquelure Vase, by Mary Stebbins Taitt--I was experimenting again, combining watercolor, markers and pen and ink. I'm including a small print, because the original is 9 x 12 and will not fit in Aya's pocket. I am not sure I am done with it, but decided to print it anyway and include it, as I am hoping to mail the blog off to Mike soon, though I haven't had time yet. The next person may get an updated version of this if I actually have time to work on it any more.

I am hoping to do some gouache in the next mole, as Steve tells me it's one of those yellow paper ones and I've discovered gouache, which requires less water, works better on those. I bought a new book on gouache and hope to try some new things in the next mole when it gets here later on.

Very cool still life Mary, I need to set some still lifes up and get back in to the swing of drawing.

Thanks, gals.

I actually worked on this some more and haven't mailed the mole yet--I added some gouache. I kind of like the new apple better, but I will just leave the one I put in the pocket there--still haven't mailed off the mole/ Things are hectic here, but it is nearly ready to go.
