Art Day with Sruthi

Today my neighbor girl, Sruthi and I played at being loose with our artwork.  First we drew some flowers with Generals water soluable pencils. Then we painted the background working around the outsides of the flowers.  I went back in with my micron 05 pen and Sruthie just added a few accents with her pen.

Next we played with some abstracts.  I used the Micron 05 permanent pen and Sruthie used a gel pen that moved a little when she added the watercolors.  As you can see as I drew my abstract, she was coping mine but making it her own.  Funny, she was across the table from me so her is reversed from mine.  I think I like hers better, I so struggle with abstracts.
These were done in our 3" x 5" Strathmore Bristol books.  I think they are both way cool.
Great afternoon and Great work Sruthi!

Happy Holidays!!

Happy Holidays to you all!
I hope you enjoy all the festivities with your families and friends.  Don't forget to have a cup of cheer for me…or some cookies….or some cake….oh and more of those great potatoes!

This a 5" x 7" card I made for our annual handmade card exchanged.  I found the image of the stocking and broke up the space into "windows" and then had some fun.  I decided to leave the bow without tangles and colored it red with a belly roll pen and then outlined the card with little red dots. It was chosen by Ede.

Wishing you all the best for the New Year!

Just Playing

Another "play" page in my 5" Handbook.  This one took an interesting turn…fat palm trees, funny pineapples or funky musical instruments?  Any way you look at it, it was fun, fun, fun.

More playing with the new tangle "Arukas"  I have to say it was more interesting and fun than I thought when I first saw it.  Lots and lots of possibilities here!

Also in my 5" Handbook.
