Every Day in May Challenge # 12 - Draw Some Buttons

Buttons drawing by ©Ana Tirolese
Draw Some Buttons

Pen and Ink, Derwent Inktense Pencils, Watercolour

There is not much to say about this one. It is pretty straight forward. I liked doing all the different colours and the bow just adds a little pizzazz to the drawing.

From the film "The Paleface" (1948)
(Jay Livingston / Ray Evans - Won Academy Award for "Best Song")

East is east and west is west
And the wrong one I have chose
Let's go where they keep on wearin'
Those frills and flowers and buttons and bows
Rings and things and buttons and bows.

Don't bury me in this prairie
Take me where the cement grows
Let's move down to some big town
Where they love a gal by the cut o' her clothes
And you'll stand out, in buttons and bows.

I'll love you in buckskin
Or skirts that you've homespun
But I'll love ya' longer, stronger
Where yer friends don't tote a gun

My bones denounce the buckboard bounce
And the cactus hurts my toes
Let's vamoose where gals keep a-usin'
Those silks and satins and linen that shows
And I'm all yours in buttons and bows.

Gimme eastern trimmin' where women are women
In high silk hose and peek-a-boo clothes
And French perfume that rocks the room
And I'm all yours in buttons and bows.

Buttons and bows, buttons and bows.....
