World Watercolor Month Starts July 1st

I had so much fun participating in World Watercolor Month last July that I decided to purchase a few new art supplies in anticipation for this July.

I splurged on a Stillman and Birn mixed media art journal from Amazon and decided to try a couple different brands of watercolor paint.  I also purchased a Quill watercolor brush.  Here are my supplies:

I couldn’t wait to try out my new journal so I had to splash some paint inside before I left for work!

Charlie O’Shields at https://doodlewash.com has been busy updating his blog and I must admit it looks soooo cool!  I hope you check out, “World Watercolor Month,” at the top of his page and subscribe to his blog.  Charlie always has an interesting story to share with his amazing watercolor paintings! 🙂

Perhaps you remember some of my watercolor posts from last July:

I really enjoyed painting the natural beauty around me when I was at the lake.  And I hope to continue this year plus add a few faces to the mix!

Back to this morning’s journal; I added these letters to my painting:

And splashed on more watercolor…

I will add some doodles to my letters and show you my results later…

I hope you will join me in celebrating World Watercolor Month.

Cheers! 🙂

A Doodle Bowl

I’m trying to eat healthier in the new year.  I was inspired by a recent cookbook I purchased on meals in a bowl to create this doodle using Faber-Castell’s water-soluble pencils.

Below are shapes from my imagination but they do look like veggies to me:

After adding water with a paint brush, I think the doodle looks more complex:

Tomorrow I will add color – just for fun!

Enjoy your day!  Cheers! 🙂

3 Wild Pears!

Remember my pear doodles?  If not, you see my beginning here.

Well, I got all three done recently:

Pear Doodle without shading

Don’t they look totally WILD!  🙂

I am “Pear-fectly pleased how they turned out!

I still want to do some shading with pencil to add to their dimension but I was so excited to get them done, I had to show you!

I thought you might enjoy seeing my favorite paper that I like for creating my doodles:

my favorite doodle paper

It comes in different sizes and I think you can get it cheaper at Dick Blick online.  I got this one at my local art supply store.

The pens I used for this doodle are Zig Writer and Micron.

I would love to know what you think about it!

Happy Creating!  🙂
