Drawing #35 - Northern Delights

It might be something in the air that the new drawing has a bit of the holiday about it. My intent had nothing really to do with the season, but was influenced by birds we're seeing and a new tube of paint in alizarin crimson. I even like to say its name and could hardly wait to open it and spread some color. I've again dipped into my box of old stamps and used four versions of a Swiss stamp of a landscape. I both scanned and photographed the drawing, again the small sketchbook size. There is so much greater depth and brighter color in the photo version so that is what I'm posting here with its digital framing.
As always, click on the image to see it larger.


  1. I'm in the middle of a layout, but I saw this out of the corner of my eye when I opened my browser and had to come take a quick peak! Jean, it's a wonderful artwork! It feels very seasonal and merry to me. I'll be back to look again when I have more time... beautiful work! :)

  2. Finally made it back for a longer lookie see... I LOVE the texture you created in this! Can't really see it until I clicked all the way to full size. I guess I need to have my eyes examined! I think this has to be my favorite! :)
