 Hello everyone,

Wednesday has arrives, again, and it is time for a new challenge over at Little Red Wagon and our lovely KATE is hostess with her theme.." HERE COMES THE SUN"..ADD A SUN..and I needed to colour..just had the urge and went for it..and who better to colour than Barry..from the now closed [so sad] are going to see quite a bit of him soon..

This is Barry fished out my pencils and started to play..

These are my start off base colours for him..then I zoned out..

Here he is all finished and starting the bottom with grass..

Added some Bee's and clouds...and my sun!

Blended over the grass again, my marker had started to dry and I was struggling, but found another in my thousands and it matched pretty well, so was able to tidy up..

The grass looks so much better over his feet now, looks like he is really standing in it and it is flat, no dies, sooooo.....

I went for a shaker...yay, Barry AND a shaker..

There's all the shaker bits floating over the front..

And all bunched down the bottom...

A dimension shot...nice and flat but noisy!..

And here is Barry, all coloured and shaky and looking unsure about those Bee's..

So do pop by and join us if you can with your SUN..

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow..

Oh he is too cute, excellent coloring of him and love the background you made, and the tiny bees flying around him is a nice touch, like your idea of making it into a shaker :)
