From Start to Finish

I love this kind of painting

My first layer with the two that I finished today is a free flowing streak of black ink. In order to continue with water colour I had to let the ink dry completely.

The next stage is to add blocks of watercolour over the paper and leave some white areas.

Now the fun starts. I make random marks using pencil, pencil crayon, marker, ink and more watercolour or acrylic. I keep playing until I’m happy with the finished product and then I sign it and remove the tape. Both pieces fit into a matt with an 8 x 10 opening.

My Daily Art Challenge – Day 7

I’m trying to paint, draw or at least doodle every day

I’m really enjoying working with my watercolours again. I’m experimenting with more watercolour abstracts and adding ink, charcoal and pen markings. Here’s my latest piece. I have two more sitting on my art table waiting for finishing touches.

Back to Painting – January 6, 2021

….a little drawing, some colouring and back to watercolours

After making my line drawing yesterday I was in the mood to get out the watercolours and ink and make another abstract floral on paper. I do get a lot of satisfaction from this style of art and will probably make more.

Orange Blooms

Day 5 – Sunny Day

….it was actually very grey today but a sunny day for my art

Sunflowers are one of my favourite flowers and I really enjoyed sketching it yesterday. Today I decided to draw another one but add some collage and colour. I started with the pieces of text collage and then I sketched the flower over it. I added the colour with Tombow markers and at the end I glued down the hummingbird that I had in my collage paper pile.

I had a very productive evening and also painted another floral abstract on watercolour paper but I think I’ll save that for tomorrow in case I don’t get to my art table.
