ATCs for Earth Day Swap

I  liked the theme for this swap and since I found the information in time, I got working. (I tend to find out about swaps or other things I like only to find that the deadline has already passed or  is too close to be met.)

Anyway – I thought I sketch some twigs that I see scattered in the forest. I love their delicate appearance against the snow (yes, it still covers the ground here – but not on the roads anymore, mainly natural surfaces like our backyard or as mentioned the forest).

These are watercolor backgrounds (with some resist from white crayon sketch), Faber-Castell Pitt Pens (regular tip, S and F) and watercolor pencil.
Everything packed in an envelope from the ‘recycled envelope‘ series 🙂

I also made two more colorful ones (only one is pictured here) that I didn’t like as much. SO therefore I only packed the two ‘twigs’ for this particular swap. Oh yes – I should state the official swap name:

Sogn Art Earth Day Swap (everything is sent to Olympia, WA and for every ATC sent one will receive an ATC from another participant)
