The sketch above began mindlessly, and then morphed into a portrait of my son’s beloved, mangy, Happy Cat. It’s one sad-looking, well-loved toy.
I tried out a pack of Bienfang Watercolor Brush Pens that I got for my birthday on some of my doodles. They are a bit tricky. Not quite like real watercolors because if you want to create a gradient, you have to start with wet paper. They dry permanently before they can be blended otherwise. At least that’s how they behave on flimsy sketchbook paper.
I’ve not done any real painting this month. And then, this morning I decided I’d have tea instead of coffee…. And cut back on sugar… Now I have a HUGE headache. It’s like I’m trying to torture myself…
I’m so excited that my children go back to school next week, so I can get back to painting – and have something to post besides doodles!!!
