Spring Tulip

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!

Blue Daisy

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. 

Haiku:

          ‘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!πŸ˜„

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 futureπŸ˜„). 

These colors are beautiful!  

Love that round tin also 😁

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

Arches and Stonehenge Papers

This was a little comparison study between Arches and Stonehenge watercolor paper. Both are cold press 140#. 

The sunflower on the left is on Arches paper and the one on the right is Stonehenge.

Arches will always be my favorite but this Stonehenge is now my second. I’m so happy I got those Stonehenge paper samples.
