Leaves – watercolor and ink

I’ve been sketching and painting leaves again. There is something about leaves that I find very calm and soothing.  Hope you enjoy…

Happy Sunday! 🙂

A fun practice with different shades of green and blue, my favorite colors. I used my Princeton 1/4 inch Dagger brush for these paintings.  I love that brush so much!

It was fun to play around with different shapes and just enjoy the painting process. ❤

Watercolor Tip: A clean tissue is always handy to have on hand for blotting. I use one when I put down too much color or too much water on the paper. Just remember to be gentle so that you don’t damage the surface of your paper.

Both watercolor paintings are on 6 x 9 inch individual sheets of Bee watercolor paper.

Continuing on with a few ink sketches…

I love the simplicity of this one. It just feels good.

When I am sketching or doodling, I try not to overthink what I am doing.

If I think about the pen in my hand and the movement of my hand, either the line I am making or going to make, things don’t work out very well for me. It sounds funny but I need a general plan and then I have to be deliberate with the pen and sketch without fear.

Thank you for stopping by and following along. I hope you find time to create art and do something you love. Until next time, have a great week.

Happy Painting!
