New Year's Jive - original mixed media figurative sketch by Connie Chadwell

This sketch is a preparatory one for a more finished painting and was such fun to do!  First, I scribbled the figures with a calligraphy felt pen that has two different size tips, onto 11 x 14" Stonehenge paper and then added a little color with Crayolas!  I love those crayons; the wonderful scent of new Crayolas reminds me of happy childhood afternoons spent 'painting' in my movie star coloring books.

Thanks so much for dropping by my blog! I have sincerely appreciated your comments and emails over the past year and look forward to more visits with you in 2010 - I wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR!   SOLD
