Big Bold Blooms 2

I’ve started a new online art class with Lynn Whipple, “Big Bold Blooms 2.”

I love the positive energy that Lynn brings to her classes.  It is a 5-week class so you will be seeing a lot more flowers in my art!  🙂

Perhaps you remember some of my  mixed media flower paintings from her first class – you can find two of them here and here.

I enjoyed doing these simple thumb nail sketches of flowers with Tombow markers:

And then looking for the shadows as you can see in my second photo below:

And a third one I did with an elegant writer pen and Tombow markers and water:

I encourage you to give these a try with a fresh bouquet of flowers!  They are so FUN!

BLOOM where you are planted!  Cheers!  🙂

Just Leaf It

I love looking at leaves in the Fall.  I am always fascinated by their shape, color and design like this one that has a few holes in it that I found at the lake:

And here is its backside – isn’t it funky?  Its pattern is what attracted me to it in the first place!

I enjoy playing with leaf patterns from my memory and imagination too – like I recently did with an Elegant Writer pen in a 9×12 inch watercolor sketchbook:

I’m in love with this pen!  🙂  It is so fun to add water to it and watch it change!  A lot like leaves “magically” change color in the fall.

Yet, I wondered what would happen if I added “fall” color to my leaves?  So I added my Neocolor water soluble crayons and a little water…

And they MAGICALLY came to life!!  May color add a little MAGIC to your day…

Cheers Friends!!  🙂
