Watercolor Journals in the Great Outdoors!

We were camping up at Nanaimo Lakes last weekend, and Andy, Lorna, and I did a bit of watercolor in our Journals each morning. Can’t think of anything I enjoy more than “arting” with some friends! And what’s amazing is that this was all done without ANY Bailey’s in our coffee!

I did this face using a black ink pen called an Elegant Writer. You draw with it, then drag a wet brush through it to get all that delicious color in her hair.


Then I tried painting rocks…..epic fail… How can such a simple object be so difficult to paint? I am just blown away by anyone who paints realistic stones, rocks or pebbles……sigh….. But I WILL keep trying!



This clown face was a surprisingly quick piece



And the last image is a bee; I am really pleased with how this turned out.

    The bee is my favourite. And your rocks do have edges.

    Love, love, love the art work. I actually think the face looks like you. Don’t think of them as pebbles but rather a gem stone instead, as this is what they look like. Amazing clown face and bee too. So much talent so little time J Can’t wait to see you tomorrow!
