It was medium-moleskine time.  I haven’t worked in this puppy since the end of February.  It’s a most convenient size…..at 8 x 12 it’s not too big to carry around and it’s a good size for a decent sized drawing.

Played with my watercolors….trying to apply different colors to the background.  As you can see, I tried to work with patterns…then gave up.

I like the vibrancy of watercolor….which expends very little energy.

After doing the alternating black/white borders to the circles, I wasn’t too impressed.

But the almighty-marker got me out of my visual pickle.

I really need to remember that watercolors can get muddy fast!

What I took away from this whimsical piece is the fun it is to bring out the shapes of the watercolor by outling the shapes with my finest nib micron.  Possibly I can carry this into something else????   Who knows Smile

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!
