#WorldWatercolorMonth... had to paint my new hand made leather journal that arrived today. I LOVE the soft leather, the smell of it, and added bonus it is full of Fabriano watercolor paper (a favorite of mine), and I'll be able to load more paper inside so I'll be able to use this journal for years and years.
#WorldWatercolorMonth IT'S ALIVE, we have a Hibiscus that a freeze last winter almost killed. I cut it back and found green in the stem so I left it in the ground. This Spring leaves appeared, but no buds and no flowers. Yesterday it produced a small delicate pink flower and I see what may be a bud or two forming, so more flowers coming soon.
First lesson in Diana Gessler's online Fantasy Nature Journaling class. She chose a picture of my dog Jeb to use as a class demo... I'm so pleased my boy will be painted by lots of artists (and Diana sent me an original she painted of him).
Second lesson is flowers, the demo included a zinnia, but I substituted my pink hibiscus on my page. I love flowers so this was a fun page.
#WorldWatercolorMonth Sea Oats at sunset. Finally, got my new printer/scanner tonight. Took my hours to get it connected (because I'd plugged the USB into the wrong port), but finally it connected and is working great.
#WorldWatercolorMonth... HORROR in Nice France today. What is wrong with people? A terrorist killed 84 women and children in the streets with a truck. The people of France were celebrating their Independence Day (Bastille Day) and were in the streets after a fireworks show when this coward ran them down. So sad.
New journal, current palette #WorldWatercolorMonth. I must admit that shortly after drawing this I got rid of the Scarlet Lake and the Naples Yellow and added Mineral Violet and Green Gold in their place.
