I’m enjoying the richness of purple. I like the beauty and simplicity of flowers. You can create with any color or brush you choose. Use a flat brush. Use a round brush. Use an ornament. Use a q-tip. Use your thumb. Hope you had a good week.
New tools and new techniques. This is an old image but it makes sense here too. I’ve begun creative exploraion. This weekend I painted mushrooms. I’ve just started the first layer.

I like my new brush. I was eager to test it and so I began thinking. What should I paint? I have all of these prints that didn’t work out. Maybe I should repaint one. I don’t want to. I have one idea that I’m excited about but the rest? it’s been time to sayContinue reading “New Brush + old ideas”

I keep going back and forth but in the end I feel I’m on the right track. I trust I am. IContinue reading “Watercolor Wonderland”
