Girl Holding Cat

Colored pencil on painted wood. I joined The Trodden Path last year as a way to ignite my creative fire. Of course like my other attempts to do anything this endeavor has sort of fallen a bit short. But last week I logged back in and joined one of the classes- Acrylic and Colored Pencil on Wood. I loved it! I started with a piece of pine and while the boys were painting some of their wooden toys, I painted the wood. After it dried, I started drawing with my colored pencils. I could take it with me from room to room. It's 9x12 so a very transportable size and pencil is fumeless and not messy so it worked out well for me. I am still struggling with my style. Can't seem to figure it out. Have a few things in my Etsy shop showing my "stick" figures with minimal features. Seem to keep coming to a more naive style. I am really drawn to folk art so maybe that is why. I want to do another one but I only have a little piece of wood at the moment. We'll see.
