This is the second post of my art journal paintings I did while on vacation at the lake. I posted the first week, here.
On Sunday, July 24, I saw four Evening Grosbeaks in a neighbor’s cherry tree at the lake so this was my inspiration for Monday’s drawing on July 25:
I added a few color pencils and white gel pen to my bird at the end.
Tuesday, I skipped a day in my art journal because I did a mixed media painting from Carla Sonheim’s FREE Kid’s Art Week that I posted last week on my blog, here.
On Wednesday, July 27, I was inspired by the purple color and shape in the wildflower, Fireweed to create this abstract feather:
Thursday, July 28th, I wanted to paint the quiet beauty that surrounds me at the lake so I painted this picture and later added a Bible verse:
On Friday, July 29, I was experimenting with gouache and was inspired by the circular shapes and colors in my flowers to created these swirls of patterns:
Saturday, July 30th found me floating in the boat and enjoying the lake! I was inspired by the clear, natural water to paint it:
On Sunday, July 31st, I celebrated 31 days of painting with watercolor for World Watercolor Month by painting a bottle of wine and one glass. I added a little pizzazz to the background with one of my Gelli-prints:
I hope I inspire you to paint on your next vacation! I found it very relaxing and a perfect way to remember my time at the lake:
Happy Creating! 🙂
