Stirring the Leaves Up


For Illustration Friday the word is 'stir' and I tried to get away from the obvious spoon and bowl or cup.
This is a girl enjoying stirring up the autumn leaves, but then who doesn't enjoy doing that?
Watercolour pencils and pen in my sketchbook.

What a lovely little sketch! I love the colours and the movement in it, but especially enjoy your interpretation of the word "stir". Very original :)
