For our prompt of “Beachball” today, after making a light sketch of just the ball, I decided to try something a little different. So, I skipped the doodle with my precious fountain pen and used only watercolor for
Yay for doing something a little different! I immediately saw that there was a difference but it took me a moment to realize what it was. I try to do a painting without the pen drawing on a regular basis, but I like drawing so always end up going back to it.
I would have loved a beach today too! It was hot and the annual visit of gnats started yesterday. I hate those things. They bite like crazy and I swell up like a balloon, especially on my face. I have a hat with netting, but I could use a whole net body suit. Unfortunately it’s too hot to wear anything like that, so I don’t stay out too long. The only good thing is they only last a couple of weeks.
Thanks, Cathy! I always paint with a brush, but I usually always start with an ink drawing first. This one had no ink. Yes, these are indeed troubling times. I wish everyone could live in peace and unity. 💕
