Thanks again to Eva and Kristin for hosting this fun event!
Congratulations to Jane Coquillon on being chosen as the feature artist this week. Some amazing work on her blog for sure <3
The heat is here and I'm spending less time outside. Just staying out there long enough to do what has to be done and then coming inside to the cooler air.
Which means I have a little bit more time for art now :) So I actually have more than one piece to share this week.
The Bee Balm in my gardens is in full bloom this week which has inspired two of the pieces. Here's the real thing....
Here are the two drawings I did ...
The first one is done with my uniball SIGNA 207 and the second one is done with Prisma Colored Pencils.
The painting for this week is a Tee-shirt that I wasn't all that crazy about so I painted on it to make it more interesting.
I used fluid acrylics mixed with Liquitex fabric medium. It's the first time I've used the fabric medium so we shall see how it does. It does make the paints much softer on the shirt instead of stiff. Time will tell how it holds up.
The gardens are exploding.... I have flowers everywhere.
These are some of the plants that I have around the fish pond in the back. There are several different kinds of Dragon Flies that live out there, but this is the only one I could get a picture of that day.
Some random thoughts for today are....
