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! 🙂

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!! 🙂
