The pen marks on this doodle went really well… Then I had the bright idea if putting watercolour over it, decided it was a mistake and tried to rub it down with toilet tissue… Yeahhh. I kinda like the effect though! And it’s always fun to have a doodle experiment!
Been watching far too many volcano videos on YouTube recently. Watercolour paper, smothered with bronze paint and sone watercolour paints.
The first thing I painted after about 10 years avoiding paints due to rented houses and enjoying pubs too much. It really broke open a part of my brain that I have not been able to lock away since. Cheap acrylic paints on cheap canvas. Look forward to having this up again at some point
Stripy light, dark lines, colourful sea
Still squiggling. Thick and heavy.
Watercolour paints and tasty black ink on watercolour paper. The paper earned its medal this time!
Spring buds on my cherry blossom and fruit trees (scroll for pics) feels later this year for some reason. Maybe I’ve just noticed it more because I’ve been at home a lot the start of this year. The robins are just starting to build their second nest of the year too! Straight back into my greenhouse lean to. I’m not growing anything this year, so let’s hope for a few more flourishing babies. Though robin babies are truly ugly. Truly..

Now, back to bed for a snooze before the main bed sleep event.
Fire up the sunshine! First day of the year sitting in the garden. Suddenly furlough is ok. I used the Brusho powder paint stuff again. I like it when wet, the way the colours bleed into eachother is exciting, but always a little disappointed when it dries less vibrant. Maybe I need to try some different paper! *Rushes to the craft shed*
A few years ago our garden exploded with hundred and hundreds of poppies, teeny ones and monsters almost a meter high. It didn’t happen last year so I’m praying to the seed god’s for it to happen again before we move
