EDM - Draw something you collect

I don’t collect anything — I desperately try to declutter. However in this corner of the sitting room there are a few things that resemble collections. The pictures on the wall are a series of watercolours I painted of architectural details in a Victorian pumping station. At the bottom of the shelves there are a few pewter tankards that came with Robin when I married him and also as part of his dowry there are various jugs and bits of Staffordshire pottery at the top of the shelves. There’s also a stack of scented candles that I designed the packaging for.

Mouse over to see the picture before the colour was added.

It is fun isn't it? Two pictures for the price of one.

That IS fun! I like seeing it before and after color is added. I can't tell you how many times I've looked at a drawing and debated about color ...
Wonderful collection of special things!

I like your "collection" drawing!
Would you mind emailing me the html for the color-rolling trick? I have a drawing that I would like to do a before/after and post on my blog. Thanks so much!
Keep Creating!
