STRATHMORE WORKSHOP - WEEK 3

Mixed media for week 3 is just deciding whether you want to use watercolor alone, a drawing in graphite and then watercolor, or a drawing and watercolor and pen with waterproof ink. 




Since it's the time of year for the Peeps to come out, I thought I'd revisit this one and put it in the journal.

I took a photo of it before and after I added the black ink.






We could not have asked for better weather lately.  In the high 70's with sunshine and some clouds.  A touch of breeze.  Warm.  Beautiful.  Perfection!  And the flowers and trees blooming in the neighborhood are wonderful. 


So what if allergies are acting up?  It is worth it!

I hope you are enjoying the full glory of spring in your area (unless, of course, you're in Australia or South Africa or somewhere that you are having a glorious fall - I hope!).

What a great job on these Peeps, Rhonda! And what a cute little painting they make! I think I prefer the one with the ink lines. For some reason those paintings always draw me (no pun intended).
