March brings breezes loud and shrill......

......Stirs the dancing daffodil. This is continuing my theme for my intended calender.

Polychromo pencils on Bristol board smooth white paper.

This one was created with Encaustic wax and represents ....
April brings the Primrose sweet, scatters daisies at our feet

 I found it most challenging as either the tools are not designed for detailed work or I just need more practice ( probably the latter lol)

Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you like my creations.
