Fun Flowers in watercolor

PjFl3

Took the above picture at Chelsea Market during my trip to NYC!  Just looking at this makes me hopeful for an early beautiful spring.

Flo7

Did some simple watercolor doodles in my moleskine one day….

Flo1

Took that same page 6 months later and expanded on it.  Amazing that I really have to look for the original forms.

Flo3

Got one of my fun stencils out…and wanted to do a hawaiian type of design inside the petals.

Flo4

Then I put in a black and white background.  Fun illustration practice.  I’ll do something like this again.

Flo5

No stencils here…just illustrated floral doodles.

Flo6

Then the fun part…..coloring Smile

Flo2

Used a simple stencil to create the leaves, then colored in…I wanted to see how this inexpensive watercolor set holds up and if it looks vivid or watered out.  I think it held up rather well!

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!
