    Brushes and Art Cards

    Yesterday, I finally got some brushes – a spotter and two rounds of varying sizes. I LOVE THEM. Ran out of watercolor paper and the bookstore didn’t have what I needed in stock, so I made three ACEO’s while listening to Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.   I made a FACE without…

    So I have this great idea for an art card – a snow at night painting, with a fairy holding a lantern. But it’s too cold, grey, and dark outside for me to paint it (read: I’m too cold and tired). I also have another idea for my last 16×20 canvas…but again with the being…

  • Watercolor on the West Coast #3

    I did some more art cards today – The last two, I decided to challenge myself and use two colors (and white when needed). So I went with red and yellow and blue and red and just played with different ways of mixing.
