By the light of the silvery moon

Nothing much to say really. This week's Play Date Cafe entry (the moon is silver but the scanner takes the shine off).

OK folks, nothing more to see here.

Move along please.

Thank you.

  8. Nigel, this is truly amazing. I am guessing this is a watercolour painting done by you. It is a beautiful composition with a stunning star of the show and it perfectly conjures up a frosty night, typical of the time of year and reminds me of what wakes me up so often lately. I love owls, I even love being woken up by them...

    Even if you didn't paint it, it is enchanting!!

  9. OK Nigel, we can take a hint!
    Seriously, love the background and how it lightens towards the moon. And that's a cheeky old owl!

  11. Sue, it's mostly Distress inks applied with sponge, although the finer detail was added by brush and pencil. The branch is a piece of scrap veneer from Bentley.

  12. I can see that we're on the same path with the distress inks. They are great, aren't they? I have to say that your kind comments on my drawing attempts mean even more to me now I've seen your work. Thank you.
