One idea leads to another painting

I have a few wreaths to share with you today. One of those times where one idea leads to another. You never know where it will take you.ย  ๐Ÿ˜Š

Happy Sunday, friends!ย ๐Ÿ’š

 

simple wreath - tombow markers

I was playing with my Tombow watercolor markers and created a little welcome wreath. Just a simple wreath using my Neon markers set.

This little wreath inspired me to try a similar style in watercolor.

A few layers of watercolor and it just didn’t end up the way I hoped it would.

I decided instead of throwing in the towel on this one to add a little ink with my sepia micron pens and see if that would help.

Ink doesn’t always fix everything but it did make me a little happier in the end.

I’m glad I used sepia with this one since it is warm and didn’t overpower the piece.

My advice is to allow yourself to play and have fun. Many times that is where creative ideas surface.ย  I hope you find time to play and create art.

Until next time, share a smile and stay excellent!

Dogwood inspired watercolor

Today I have a watercolor inspired by the flowering Dogwood tree in my yard.

Happy Thursday, friends! ๐Ÿ’š

7 x 10 inch watercolor under painting

I started with a painting of pretty petals and leaves. No details needed at this point, that will come later with the ink sketching. The loose watercolor provides a nice base for the ink sketch.

I love that peachy pink, as I’ve said before I have a serious #colorcrush on that combination. ๐Ÿ˜‰

A little sketching with a Sepia micron pen provides the needed floral detail.

I like that the fine tip Sepia doesn’t overpower this piece. I also used a white gel pen for just a few highlights here and there.

I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love.

Until next time, share a smile and stay excellent!

Neon garden sketch

I have a bright floral sketch to share with you today.

Happy Thursday, friends!ย  ๐Ÿ’š

 

tombow brush pens

I recently purchased a set of Tombow dual brush pen markers and have been having fun playing with them. These bright citrus colors grabbed my attention.

I just love how bright and intense they are. There’s nothing shy about these markers. ๐Ÿ˜€

Neon Garden – 9 x 12 inch bee mixed media sketchbook

I started with the brush pens first to sketch out the flowers. These flowers seem to be my go to lately. They keep following me around and showing up in many of my pieces.

On top of the bright colors, I used a micron pen to build upon the sketch. I really like the combination of both here. Overlapping and drawing outside the colors is a fun way to create. I think it adds movement and more interest.

Thank you for stopping by and following me on this creative journey.

Until next time, sprinkle kindness all around and shine on!
