Folk Art done in a medium I'm not used to
I apologize for being a week late and I hope it's okay to post. I haven't posted anything for many years and I thought I needed to get back into this. It's so fun. So I took a sketch that I had done with perspective and all that I would normally do and turned it into my version of Folk Art. Then I chose a medium that I'm really not used to at all: crayons. At least not any more. I used to love them! Now the thing I forgot about is that crayons have crumbs and they smudge. That was a particular challenge to learn how to do this without ruining everything. I have to say that I almost started over with a medium I feel comfortable with but I forged on. Now maybe true Folk Art wouldn't have a kitty family that owns a dog but I thought, why not! I hope you'll enjoy my attempt.
