Drawing challenge: reef

January 23, 2016

Hi guys,
I’m so happy Katrin called this week’s drawing challenge: reef.
Come with me in the blue light of the morning to see if we might catch a little of the magic of the reef.

Tiptoe into the dining room.

There’s the magic journal.

Let’s open it and maybe we can catch a glimpse of the blue watery depth of a reef.

Oh my gosh! Just as we suspected. While we slept, mermaids were tickling jellyfish.

But now our tea is ready.

And the washed brushes have dried and are waiting for another day of painting.

So we must leave the mermaids in their reefy blue and get on with our soon to be golden day. Come swim over to Katrin’s and see everyone’s salty creations. đŸ˜€
