Watercolor Collage

Happy Monday!  On Saturday, I painted with watercolor and created a variety of patterns then cut up pieces to make a floral sun. I enjoy this art making  method because of the many surprises of mixing the different patterns  and shapes.

Fabric Illustration

Greetings – I’ve been gone for a few days, so I’m posting a few pieces of art making from the archives. Back to the drawing table this week.

The elephant made from a paper bag/ fabric and the gargoyle is made from fabric with some Photoshop enhancements.

Collage Bird Takes Flight

Happy Sunday! I spent several hours of joyful art making and my colorful bird takes flight.

This is how the bird started….Derwent watercolor and Sharpie fine line black pen. 6″ x 9″

and…after some cutting and pasting the bird is soaring high. The background is made with Derwent watercolor and watercolor pencil. 9″ x 10.5″

Draw a Bird Day

Good Morning – I don’t always make the 8th of the month for Draw a Bird Day, but today I have two birds to share.

Watercolor and watercolor pencil… House Sparrow

I received a catalog in the mail for window treatments, so I used the different patterns for the a dandy collage bird.

Sketchy

Good Morning – I used my LL Bean catalog as a model reference for this camper pouring his coffee. I surrounded him with my choice of campground. Drawing is so much fun, brain to hand to pen to paper. Have a happy and creative day.
