Art Quotes doodled

Not much time for art these days, so I did what I do when I’m time-challenged.

Grabbed my square watercolor paper and started stenciling on it.   Then watercoloring via w/c pencils.

Something needed to be done with all that white space….looked like a good place to get some font practice in.

Pulled up some of my favorite Art Quotes to write in those areas.

Used some of my new Stabilo fine point markers for the floral areas.

Just coloring fun here,

and here,

and here.

Had to go back and re-apply the black outlines cuz the watercolor will overlay on the lines and dull….them….down.

  • Everything that needs to be said has already been said but no one was listening, so it must be said again- Andre Gide

  • One eye sees the other eye feels- Paul Klee
  • Treat a work of art like a prince, let it speak to you first- Arthur Schopenhauer
  • Writing helps me wake up the rest of life- ?

The finished piece is great! How did you put the design together? Do you do the flower art first and then apply the stencil, erasing out the flower part that isn't needed, or do you put the stencil down first and then add the art into the space?

Thank you @Lisa and @Ellen
@Diane to answer your question, I put the swirl stencil down first then I had another flower stencil that I put down in the background areas of the swirl. Hope this helps and Thanks for commenting and your interest!!

About Me

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!
