It's Been Quiet

I haven't been on the blog much. The workshops have been keeping me busy as well as a new interest in watercolors. I took a free online watercolor class and I must admit I am smitten. These are the two pieces I've painted over the last few days. This one is on very good quality Arches watercolor paper. It is a study of a quilt I am going to make.

This one is of some poppy heads I picked this morning on my 5am walk. I did it on crap paper so lesson learned: Don't waste your time or paints on crap paper. It was like egg carton - just super absorbent compressed paper.

I also made a "folder" to keep these small sketches in. It is about 8" X 10" and covered in the paper from the Paste Paper Workshop. I used permamnet markers to "color" the button and some heavy metallic cord with a silver foil bead as a closure. Very fun to make.

WARNING: You may see more watercolors in the future.


  1. be careful, sketching is very addictive! Lovely works you have made.
