#WorldWatercolorMonth July 11, 2020 Prompt: Round

Excited by ball has dimension! Also I added a shadow, I’ve never done a shadow. I don’t know if it is a good shadow, but it is there. And as a bonus there is a round sun, didn’t think of that til afterwards. So it is roundS!

Kind of looks like pac-man got more than he bargained for!!! Haha!

I do wish my sky looked better. It’s a process.

#WorldWatercolorMonth July 9th, 2020 Prompt: Fruit

Well, I am surprising myself yesterday and today! Some time back I bought some fake food, including fruit, and I used that for my watercolor today. Honestly I was very surprised, VERY!

Now crafts world I’m still all over the place, but art I have found what I really really like!

Doodlewash June 29th, 2020 Prompt: Owl

I love how it turned out except two things. One the pupils of the eyes bled really took away any chance of intensity. Second was the paper. I used masking tape and when I took it off it peeled the top layer of paper off. Made me mad because this was something that was supposed to be “good” paper. My cheap stuff doesn’t do that! Of course one nice thing is it is a post card so if I wanted I could mail it to someone. Undecided on that.
