Day 21 of the 30 in 30

It's a fishy! He called to me as I painted so I let him come to life. He was a lot of fun to paint!

Day 20 of the 30 in 30

I really like how this turned out. Can you guess which medium I used to create this image? That's right, watercolors! Yeah, I'm not that shocking. It does look like pastels to me (even more so in the original). So weird how that happened! This is just ink and watercolor. All of the white is the paper underneath and not added color.  

The pastelish result was partly  because I painted dark colors on the paper and tremoved color in certain areas to enhance the light. It was kind of an accidental painting, because I created this image based on where the water took away the color rather than planning. I should try this water technique in a purposeful manner. In any case this was fun! 




You may have noticed that I've caught up! I'm actually ahead a day on these challenges. I wanted to be able to post on social media the day the image was done rather than waiting a day to post.

Day 19 of the 30 in 30

This wasn't meant to be a bear, but in my mind there is no doubt that this is indeed a bear. Love this guy. One of my favorites. Shh, don't tell my other art cards!

Day 18 of the 30 in 30

I just have a simple little mouse for you today. I was out of cut paper in my art studio so I decided to experiment with the pieces I had. For this one I painted the whole thing blue and then used a paper towel to erase the middle. It looked like a mouse so that's how I finished him off.

Day 17 of the 30 in 30

So this painting is a bit disproportionate and not so pretty. It's basically a photo of me in the morning so don't judge. I'm a bear in the morning without my coffee. There is no line on my coffee that says when you can talk to me. If my coffee is less than 1/4th full it means I need another cup. Talk to me at your own peril.

Day 16 of the 30 in 30

This is a weird fairy unicorn picture that I painted. Decided to just create it freehand. Maybe there is some things off about it, but it's still fun!

Day 15 of the 30 in 30

This is the card I created for my husband for Valentine's Day. It was painted so it counts! It's a bit more cartoony than I usually go, but I like it. I always prefer funny/goofy cards rather than serious things. They just make better cards!
