An Enchanted Walk


Whenever Marina is on the final page of a sketchbook, she likes to do something special. It usually takes her a few days to pencil, ink and color her work. This recent final page reminded me very much of my own work, so I thought I would share it. The detail needs to be appreciated full size, so click on the image for the larger picture.

What amazes me the most is that she does this naturally. Her art school has been observing life and experiencing works of art in books and museums. I am only a guide, helping her to notice and sometimes explaining how to use different media.

And, of course, I supply her with lots of paper!

Gorgeous! I'd love to have a print like that to hang on the wall. It's kind of mesmerizing. :)

Was that the trail of a dashing mosquitoe? Imagine what it would be like if you used 20/20 vision, Marina? I love all the details and the art in it all. I love you, precious.

Lovely job! You must be proud of her talent. I'm going to have to mention to my DD about doing something special on the last page of a pad. I think she'd like that idea!

Cheers,
Ruby
