First up is a page I'm linking to the Simon Monday Challenge blog for the theme this week of "A is For...". My response is "art journal"!
Mandarin Orange Monday.
I played a bit in Photoshop too this week. I started with these two photos I took :
For this photo I used "Find Edges under the Effects tab. I thought this would be a good one to watercolor so I printed the image onto Strathmore Texture paper then sealed it with a fixative spray and allowed it to thoroughly dry before adding some color:
Some of the things that bring me joy: B for Bill, a T for Todd, my English Cocker Annie, the heart flowers represent friends and family, of course a brush loaded with vibrant colors, the beach and the ocean, birds, flowers, music, summer sunshine, books, and travel (esp. to see my relatives in France). I am currently working on 5 other title pages of drawings but need to add the coloring yet. And that's not even catching up with all the lessons so far!
Gotta get back to drawing and painting... see you soon. As always, thanks for all your comments and encouragement-it means a lot to me :)
