Yesterday I was sitting outside watching the garden grow and listening to my kids playing when I suddenly felt like drawing. I was looking at the peas in the garden and thought those would be fun to draw. So I grabbed some paper and a pen and started sketching and when the sketch was done, I looked at it and thought, this needs some color. So I grabbed a small set of watercolors and painted away.
Excuse the horribly warped paper
After I finished the peas I though "that was pretty fun and different" so I ripped off the "garden peas" picture and started sketching and throwing paint on the next piece of paper. As someone who paints primarily from photographs, It's fun to paint from the imagination. I think I'm going to do it more often. I was inspired from our trip to ZIONS and all the beautiful rock formations.
I used india ink, pen, salt and spray webbing (and watercolors of course)HERE.
