Handcrafted Watercolors

I bought some handcrafted watercolor paints from https://www.etsy.com/shop/AnthesisArts?ref=l2-shopheader-name. There are three sets of different color and I bought the ‘Coastal’ set. (I can see purchasing the rest in my future๐Ÿ˜„). 

These colors are beautiful!  

Love that round tin also ๐Ÿ˜

I did a test on my Arches and Stonehenge watercolor papers, both 140# cold press. I personally love the Arches paper and it wins everytime with me.

To find out more on these paints I’m referring you to Jessica’s great in-depth review on https://doodlewash.com/2017/03/11/doodlewash-review-anthesis-arts-handcrafted-watercolors

Long-stemmed Leaf

It’s not only cacti that inspire me, it’s nature in general. This leaf being a small piece of nature that grabbed my attention.


          ‘And yet one more leaf

            Laying on the road so quiet

           ‘Sketch me’, it yelled out’

So I did
Water-soluble ink and pencil in the sketchbook from Suzy. It has really nice paper.

Leaf Addiction

I went for a walk this morning and found this leaf. I just had to paint it. And write a haiku:

‘Yes, I’m addicted

To enjoying autumn leaves

I just must paint them!’

Another Autumn Leaf

I love painting autumn leaves. Such a beautiful gift from nature. Haiku:

‘Take the time to stop 

And enjoy the pretty leaves

A once a year gift’

Autumn Arrives

‘Welcome to autumn

Where the leaves dance their goodbye

To make us smile’

Happy first day of autumn!

And of course, what would autumn be without her beautiful leaves.

‘This dried up brown leaf

Was once a pretty green one

Hanging on a tree’
