I have drawn these teasels on some black card like paper with watercolour pencils. The card and pencils I have had for ages and thought I would get them out and give them a try. Hope you like them and thank you for looking.

They’re beautiful. I love teasels and have some in my back yard. As a child we painted them with gold paint as part of the Christmas decorations.

Fantastic. If I saw that in a shop I’d buy it. You’re very talented.

Thank you for all of your kind words. I am going to have these framed for one of my friend’s birthday presents - just hope she likes it.

You have captured their frailty perfectly purplepixie. I hope you enjoyed drawing them.

Beautiful, delicate work, PP.
When I enlarged the photo on my phone, I could have stroked them, they looked so real.

What a super picture and such a lovely gift to give to your friend Purplepixie. You are very talented. My Dad took up drawing and painting after he retired. He was never impressed with his efforts, but allowed me to choose one or two that I liked. My favourite is one of teasels. Now framed and hanging here, it reminds me of him everyday and I now grow teasels in my garden!

Lovely story GrandmaSeaDragon. What a lovely momento to have.

They're lovely purplepixie, I love the lighting. I'd like to try watercolour pencils but don't know how to. There must be a UTube video!

Lovely drawing. Lucky friend to get a gift like that.

Kate1949 Fri 21-Jan-22 14:17:48

Beautiful. I think there are tutorials on YouTube Nfk.

Thank you so much. NfkDumpling Just get your watercolour pencils out and some paper and experiment. You can look on YouTube but I like to do my own thing. Happy drawing and painting! If I can do it then anyone can.
