Ok, it doesn’t keep anything away, but they do make me smile. 🙂 I really like sunflowers. I wanted to try out my newest splurge; the Derwent Inktense Blocks 72 count. I have plans for those and I was trying them out tonight on watercolor paper. The little bit of background is done with my Derwent watercolor pencils.
I had a lot of fun and the colors are gorgeous. As I’ve seen on many you tube videos, adding water really makes the color POP! One thing I learned, however, was that next time I’ll use a piece of paper under my hand. It smears pretty easily. The colors went down nice and creamy and I couldn’t wait to add water to it. You can leave it dry, but I really think that’s better done in small amounts. Not wetting them is really missing out on the explosions of color.
I used an Elegant Writer for the text. I’m working on my calligraphy again, but gosh those elegant writer’s have the crappiest tips! I don’t know how anyone could really learn to do nice lettering with those things. It was right to hand, though, so I used it.
Anyway, ya’ll have a great night and try to stay out of trouble…or at least don’t get caught. 🙂
