Blooming love – line and wash

I have a little floral happiness to share with you today. It starts with a watercolor painting and ends with ink sketching.

I hope your day is happy and bright!  💚

Blooming love watercolor under painting

I started out with a loose floral underpainting.  This watercolor has been sitting on my desk waiting for the right inspiration.

There are times when I will jump right in and start sketching after the watercolor has dried and then there are times like this…  I needed some time to think and make a few decisions.

Then about a month later I was ready and added the ink sketching below.

This time I decided to add some sketching and a few light doodles. Nothing over the top but enough to enhance and add some detail to the piece. I love how the ink wakes everything up.

This is one of my favorite ways to create art. I may consider creating a collection of these to offer for sale in the near future. I have gifted a few pieces of my art but haven’t tried to sell anything yet. Hopefully I will be ready to give that a go sometime soon.

I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love. Thank you for following along and sharing this journey with me.

Until next time, share a smile and shine on!

Playful Pink watercolor and ink

I have some fun pink flowers to share with you today.  Hope your day is sunny and bright.

Happy Thursday, friends!  💚

After painting my flowers and leaves, I used a micron pen to add some detail and a few doodles. The watercolor paper I used was only somewhat smooth and I found sketching on it was a bit difficult. I should have done a better job planning but in the end it worked out fine.

Tip:  If your paper is not smooth, it will really eat up the tip of your pen. A better choice for me would have been to use a mixed media paper or possibly a hot press watercolor paper (which has a super smooth surface).

I love the combination of watercolor and ink together. I really like the light blue next to the pink in this piece. My flowers simple and playful… and that just makes me happy. 😊

I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love. Thank you for stopping by and following along.

Until next time, share a smile and shine on!

Pink Lily watercolor doodle

I have a fun watercolor and ink doodle to share today.

Happy Thursday, friends! 😊💚

Pink Lily watercolor underpainting 

A few of my favorite things to paint…flowers and leaves.

I used a big round #12 brush for my watercolor underpainting. Then the decision was to keep painting adding more detail or stop painting and proceed later with ink.

I decided to go forward with ink sketching using a Micron pen.

I like how the ink wakes up the flowers and the doodles add a little extra fun.

Until next time, share a smile and shine on!

Peachy Floral ink doodle

Another watercolor and ink doodle to share with you today.

Happy Thursday, friends! 💗

Peach floral watercolor underpainting

I started with a floral watercolor underpainting.

Colors used: 
Peachy pink (Quinacridone rose + Yellow ochre)
Cobalt teal blue
Prussian blue
Sap green

 

Peachy floral patterns ink and watercolor

Using a micron pen I added floral doodles on top of my painting. I also added a cute little butterfly.  🦋😊  To finish things off I used a white gel pen to add some fun polka dots.

This style is a bit wild and loud. I like that my doodles are spontaneous, but it’s easy to end up with too much noise on the page. I really need to work on that…but I love creating this way.

I will be taking a little blogging break and will be back in a week or so.

Until next time, share a smile and shine on! 💚
