I have been playing with something totally new to me… Watercolors and Doodling! I have been on that website again- you know- the one I post about all the time! LOL Tracy Weinzapfel Studios. The Facebook page- where are the lovely ladies are always inspiring me. I also have been back doing my Brave Girl Art Classes. (I am signed up for both Art School 1 & 2 and what fun!)
Anyway- I just played around with this first one- crooked buildings! LOL Then I colored in the buildings with watercolor crayons. It was easy, relaxing and a good learning experience.
So then- as I was realizing that I am truly enjoying this fun play process- Tracy and Co have been doodling more and more and even taking their “gear” on the road. It made me realize that instead of playing on my phone or reading a book when I am on the bus or waiting for an appointment- I could play too.
So with that end in mind- I grabbed my PITT Pens, my watercolor crayons, a pencil and an eraser and headed out. It took me a few days of playing with it on and off before I ended up with this! I LOVE IT! (I have to admit- at the end I added regular watercolors for the background- I mean I bought them- so I should use them right?! LOL)
I just love the way the colors get so bright and fun! This was a lot of work- but it was fun and I enjoyed the process. So much so that I asked a lot of questions from Tracy and the gals and well.. then I went to the art store… (Did I mention that it is only 5 blocks from my place? Dangerously close and easy to walk to!)
And well, look at my haul! Watercolors, white pens to doodle on top with, PITT Pens in lovely bright colors, a landscape pad, a circle template for flower making and a bunch of paint brushes, including water pens! OH I can’t wait for the fun!
