EDM #3 - Purse

micron pen, watercolors, 5x8.5 journal

A few months ago when I joined the EDM group and read the list of challenges I knew that this was the purse that I would do for it when I felt I could do it some justice! So much color s0 a simple pencil sketch would not have done it for me =) I recently started doing watercolor & pen work so decided to give it a go.

It's a very special gift from my globe-trotting brother who sends me gifts and post cards from all over the world. I've always loved the mystery and history of ancient Egypt and would love to get there some day to see everything in person.

I love this painting, Laura, it captures so well the Egyptian-ness of the purse, and so nicely, softly colored. Great drawing, and beautiful painting.
