As you can see from my title, I bet you have guessed what my "Opposites" theme is for the February Challenge. I have been thinking of doing some dog and cat pieces and this was a chance to do one of my cartoonish drawings. Also, I got to play with my new set of Staedtler Ergosoft Aquarell Pencils that I won at an art auction this month. I really like these watercolor pencils because they blend so well when you add water to them.

I have a stack of sketchbooks, so I am using more than one sketchbook for the challenges. The first one I used for the January Challenge is a small Moleskine that I painted the pages. For this Challenge I needed a bigger sketchbook and one with thicker paper. So, to give it a little personality, I have started collaging the front of it. I will be adding designs to it as I go along with the challenge.
I am slowing coming out of my creative slump. I think the warmer weather here in the Southern United States is helping my mood. :) I am hoping to get outside more and do some sketching with friends. I think that will help a lot with re-energizeing my artistic juices.
Have a great March!!
