From My Sketchbook.





Hi everyone! It's getting hotter and hotter outside, and my blood pressure is sooo looow! :(( Glad I can enjoy some pleasant studio time indoors. I'm trying some watercolor papers- new grains, new textures, new effects.
Hope your week is off to a great start!

  1. LOVE the effect the watercolor has on that paper!!! I tried doing watercolors on some rice paper I bought in college... I had NO control over where the paint would end up! lol Talk about abstract art!

  10. Love them both and the sunflower too!
    Low B/P can be just as bad as high B/P, do be careful love!
    I suppose we'll just be getting used to the heat and it will be freezing again!
