Fabulous Flowers

Revisiting a post from December 2011 that I posted on my squarespace site that I no longer support.

I’ve been a bit busy in ISP land….you see my internet was only giving me 1.5 mb upload and download speed….noticed by my son who was home for a visit.  If I’m a-uploading, he gets kicked off of his “score-keeping” games…so he took it upon himself to do a little research.  I have now switched over to another local company for LESS money.  I now have 20.0 mb speed.  Don’t quote me on the mb??? could be gb for all I know.

Coloring book style starting point.

Since, I really want to sketch…but haven’t found the right picture…I thought I’d do something quick and easy!

I think there’s something magical about watercolor pencils and vibrant markers side by side.  I think they bring out the best in each other.

This picture just makes me happy!! Red and Green together…they belong together like salt and pepper, pen and paper, socks and shoes!!

Aerial view….haha

I took 22 shots of my work-in-progress, then I edit them down to what I want you to see.  Here’s the seventh picture in this post.  Lucky Seven!

Thanks guys :)
@Deb- no problem with outlining the watercolor parts with a waterproof black the faber-castel ones or microns. I usually go in and outline after the watercolor has dried. Makes the black more bold!

You're so good at doing these flower pictures. I love this one. And all those little circles in the background! That took some time!

About Me

My photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
