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 so much, Karen! 😃💕 Oh my goodness, I agree on the outings. I’m just now getting back into the world a bit and have a dentist appointment next week! I’m ready for the adventure and seeing people again. Oh my goodness… I would kill for a lobster roll right now… YUM!

Nicoline, your work is so fantastic! Having had similar wrist problems that forced me to switch from pen drawing to painting, I fully understand your need to take it slow. Thank you for sharing your artistic journey with us!
