There are hummingbirds everywhere fluttering their wings and sipping nectar. They are such a joy to see. I found this image on Pixabay and was inspired to paint.
Fluttering their graceful wings
Sharing their beauty’
Watercolor on Stonehenge watercolor 140# paper in my small sketchbook.
Hope you all have a beautiful day.
You never know what fun you’re going to find when cleaning drawers and cabinets, especially in art supplies.
I found my charcoal pencils! Years ago I used to work with them a lot. But then watercolor took over my life.
Well, when I found these I quit cleaning and started sketching😄. So fun to work with them again. I’m going to sharpen them and keep them close at hand.
I did this on Stonehenge hot press watercolor paper and did use a light wash on the background.
Ever since I bought that fountain pen I’ve been in a cherry blossom mood. In this case, plum blossoms.
‘Simple, sweet and pink
Plum blossoms are so pretty
I love to paint them’
Stonehenge watercolor paper 300# using Daniel Smiths Quin Rose watercolor.
It’s so great to be seeing clearly now, I can’t keep away from my paints. Thank goodness for glasses!
This tulip is on Stonehenge 300# watercolor paper which I am really liking a lot. But I couldn’t get the label off the sample.
And of course a haiku written with my new pen:
‘A flash of yellow
Rising above the tall geeen
A little tulip’
Wishing you a happy spring day!
Two weeks ago I shared a picture of our heavily clouded skies. I wanted to paint it just for the practice of lights and darks and because these kind of skies are so interesting.
The sun has been shining like crazy ever since! 😄
D. Smith watercolors in my small handmade sketchbook using Arches 140# watercolor paper
I saw a picture of this blue Daisy on Pixabay and it called my name because of the luscious blue. I used Daniel Smith’s Cobalt blue and had to glaze it several times to get the depth. Done on Stonehenge 300# watercolor paper.
‘Such a beauty blue
And it’s a Daisy as well
My eyes are happy!’
Speaking of my eyes: I get my glasses on Thursday (for my astigmatism) and things are almost back to normal. Most of all, colors are so beautiful and bright now. I think that’s why that Daisy grabbed me. Such a beautiful blue. And it’s a Daisy!😄
Another little sketch on Arches WC paper using my new watercolors handcrafted by Anthesis.
Since it’s Cactus Monday I decided these were growing in the desert and needed to be painted. 😄. Whatever works 😄😄
I also discovered that this round tin fits in my mixing dish just perfectly.
