EDM challenges #27-Book and #5 - Bed

These are for the EDM challenges #27-Book and #5 bed. I have been meaning to get to these for ages and finally on Sketchcrawl day, I did a heap of drawing! The book is a new sketchbook I bought recently for the spiral alone. I am a trades person and the big steel spiral appealed to the Fitter part of me. The paper is very thin and colour pencils come to life on it. As for the bed, this was one of the few times it was actually made! Black pen and watercolour paint. Posted by Picasa

I love those bright colors on the bed! You did an awesome job on both sketches! I love looking at your Blog with all the neat things on it.

Hi Shelly, i just popped over for a look at your blog and I think I recognise this art pad as the same as mine! It's a bit thin (110gsm) but the paper feels so good. Is is a Winsor & Newton?

Your drawing are excellent and the colours in the coloured drawings so vibrant - what do you use?
