SUNDAY SKETCHES WITH ALEXANDRA



A few weeks ago I did my first little mouse for Creative Tuesday's theme "Picnic" (see below)  If you remember, I have all seven days of the week with these little mice statues.  So I decided to do them all.  This is "Monday ~ Wash Day."




I started with pencil sketch, and then used black marker, and finished off with watercolors.



This is the Sunday Mouse ~ Having a Picnic.

To see all the wonderful Sunday Sketches just click on the tree badge on my sidebar.  And Thank You Alexandra for this fun Art Challenge.

    1. Thanks so much Jane. The watercolor really brings then to life don't you think? That's why I showed the sketch without it.

  6. I'm getting the feeling that this little mouse likes cookies... didn't the first sketch have cookies too? Reminds me of someone...

    2. Just realised that the wash day mouse does not have a cookie... I'm losing my mind!
