Tulip – ink and watercolor

Happy Spring!

I have a fun ink and watercolor Tulip to share with you today.

Fellow blogger and talented artist, Jill Kuhn, recently posted a beautiful ink Tulip. I was inspired by Jill’s lovely art and decided to sketch a Tulip and give Zentangle a try. It was fun creating different designs and patterns all over the flower and leaves. I added a splash of watercolor at the end to brighten things up. I’m really happy with the end result. πŸ™‚

This little birdie was the pick me up that I needed a few weeks ago. ❀

After a few paintings didn’t work out very well, I needed to get back to something I really enjoy painting. It’s good to know where to turn and what makes you feel good.

I decided to follow my heart and that made me very happy.

Watercolor tips:

  • give some thought to your color palette and background before you begin
  • allow some areas of paint to bleed into one another and let the watercolor magic happen
  • don’t put pressure on yourself, stay positive and enjoy the process

I hope you are inspired to create art and do something you love.
Thanks for stopping by and following along. Until next time, have a great week and enjoy yourself. πŸ™‚

Calm and Peaceful

Sharing a few calm and peaceful images with you today.

This painting was inspired by an exercise in the lovely Jean Haines’ book, Paint yourself calm. I love the simplicity of this painting.

Jean notes that it is important to enjoy the painting experience and not worry about the outcome. When I am able to let go and do that, it really feels good. πŸ™‚
