It's so wonderful to be able to cheer someone in a way unlike any other. There is just nothing quite like a letter. This is going out to someone needing some encouragement. I'm sorry it's not a better shot. I was in a dash to get to the post office after spending quite some time on drawing this by hand in graphite.
In my graphite work I never use a stomp blender or my fingers for shading. Just my opinion, but that's cheating.
"Instead I use a variety
of soft and hard graphite grades."
Including different sharpened points, and varying pressure.
This technique takes oodles more time than using a blender. But the results are distinctly night and day. This should make my point. =)
I added a touch of Christmas with green and red in the caudal fins. Are you sending out something extra special in the post this week? With all the cheer, we need to remember that not everyone has family filled Holidays. Send some cheer, get scribbling!
Hello, I’m Nina, the maven behind the
IQS blog. I’m all about creativity (ya think?).
I work in several disciplines. So it's no surprise that the Art of Letter Writing would come knocking on my door. Smitten!
However, I did not want to simply add MailArt as a discipline to my website. Thus it became the IQS Blog within my site. And that is why there are TWO navigation menus. *Here’s a Tip: stick with the BLOG Menu in this Column. The main site menu will lead you astray into dark places where you will be screaming for help and no one will hear you.
• More Love Letters
• Letter Writers
• A Month of Letters
• Post Card Exchange
