At Fox Island

This is a small illustration I did while the grandchildren were swimming the other day at Fox Island at Indian Lake, Ohio.  The illustration is 8" x 10" and was done with Prismacolor watercolor pencils and a black Micron pen.  It is not the greatest work of art, but is an accurate representation of the sunny, beautiful day at the lake.

Barb, your talent is so versatile. This is a very endearing illustration. Your grandchildren must be very proud of their grandmother.

Christiane and Autumn Leaves - Thanks for commenting on this illustration. We had a lovely day, and I just love sitting there in the lake breezes, watching the cherubs and drawing and painting. Illustration is not my forte, but I do love having a visual memory of my days there.
