One more ink and watercolor pictograph.  But first I drew in the pictures using red china marker (which is a very waxy pencil in white, black and red).  Then I put in the watercolor and some ink to push it back a bit.

This one tells the story of a good rain and a good crop yield :)

Definition of PICTOGRAPH

1.  an ancient or prehistoric drawing or painting on a rock wall

And a little watercolor flower on a scrap of paper - good for a bookmark.

I have to say I sure love that little flower painting! It'll be a great cheerful bookmark for you!

I absolutely love your little watercolour flower, Rhonda. It has such character - manages to be delicate and bold at the same time. Fabulous.

Thanks, Maggie! I'm still going to get some sandpaper and roughen a few of the ink drawings off.

Vandy and Sherry, thanks - the little flower just took shape on its own and worked out well :) Glad you like it.

Pictographs are cool. I saw them when I was in Colorado. I really like yours. I think you should do a modern pictograph. Someone with a cell phone not getting any service with a cell tower in the background.
