The Puzzler

Many of you may know that I LOVE puzzles!

So when Carla Sonheim recently gave the assignment on her “365 video class” to create A Puzzle Picture, I had to give it a try!

I started by creating an imaginary shape in watercolor.  After a couple of watercolor layers, I added detail with color pencil and shaded with a 2B pencil.  And my imaginary animal(s) appeared!

Next, I cut my paper in half and added elements that fit together like a puzzle:

From each side of my square:

It was a fun challenge to get the elements to line up and create an interesting picture:

I hope you give it a try!

And allow your imagination to let go like a child’s balloon in the sky…

I hope you weekend is FUNtastic!

Cheers!  🙂

Cute Critters

I’ve been taking an online watercolor class from Danielle Donaldson.  It is fun to learn to paint in someone else’s style.  I hope to apply bits and pieces to my own style.

I don’t paint a lot of “cute” but these critters were fun to do – a bear:

And a hound dog:

They might make fun cards when I need to cheer someone up – like YOU!

Cheers!  🙂
