Scribble Picnic - Crunchy

A quick post and run this week as I have a busy day ahead....

This week's theme for Scribble Picnic is CRUNCHY

First layer of watercolour with a little INKtense pencil

And the end result.  I could have fiddled about with it some more but time is limited today.

Scribble Picnic - Plump

Hi everyone!

I'm so sorry that I've been absent for the past two Scribble Picnics. Two weeks ago I was in quite a lot of pain after having an upper molar extracted.  The tooth put up one heck of a fight so my gums were very tender and bruised for longer than usual. In fact, I'm still not fully recovered. I'm not a fan of getting dental work done at the best of times but that had to be the worst tooth extraction I've ever experienced! I thought they had broken my jaw at one point after there was a heap of pressure and force, then a loud CRACK! They assured me it was just the tooth coming away from the bone but I'd never had that happen with previous extractions.

I had intended to do last week's THREE colour option for the picnic but it turned out to be an extra busy week and time got away from me. Such a shame because I was really keen to try that one — I hope Michael will consider giving it another go-round or I may just do it anyways and slip it into a future post.

This week's prompt was 'PLUMP' and I couldn't get past thinking about the row of five Money Plants (aka Crassula Ovata or Jade Plants) lined up along the front entrance to our home.  They are quite mature now with thick tree like shapes.

Their leaves are thick and 'plump'.

I sketched it directly with watercolours and a paintbrush

Some pen detailing and more shadow work to add some depth

And the finished page in my sketchbook
