Ann Turley – Nature #1


Nature is everywhere so the choices are many. I’ve settled on Life on the Farm as my overall year-long theme. Nature #1 is Carrots and will be followed by another root vegetable in March. The soil is rich, the carrots are fat and healthy. I’ve used a commercial cotton for the soil, an interesting batik for the sky, and a whimsical carrot print for the carrots. Each carrot is detailed with tiny roots sprouting from the bottom and sides. There is also detailing with Inktense pencils and Pigma Pen. I do think this will be a very fun series!
