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!😄
#inktober #haikutober Day 9. I just had to get one more daisy in here 😄. Of course. Haiku:
‘Black and white Daisy
Taking the place of yellow
Still so beautiful’
Pen: TWSBI fills with Noodlers permanent black ink
Time for a happy mandala and haiku.
So sunny, bright and happy
A daisy cousin’
Yesterday I did my volunteer ‘job’ at the hospital gift shop. See how hard I was working?!
Looking for sunshine
And pretty Daisy flowers
To brighten the day
Mostly looking for sunshine as the day is already bright with birthday love.
There are times I don’t know where my ideas come from….
I wondered how small I could paint, so I tore a piece of watercolor paper down to about an inch. Then I decided to sketch a domed building on it and of course I couldn’t fit the whole building on it but I did get a little bit. Then I turned it over and painted a Daisy on the other side. Of course.
Just having some Sunday fun.
I have seen the latest wave of ‘jewels’ and had to make a daisy jewel. I used ink and my ‘magic pencils’.
Very fun and meditative.
