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

- 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!
