    MISTLETOE ~15/31 @doodlewashed December sketch prompt. Another Christmas tradition we don't really know or practice here in South Africa, but I like the idea of true love kissing under the mistletoe! #WorldWatercolorGroup #nadsart #sketch #watercolor #Doodlewashed IMG_20171215_173221_793

    POINSETTIA ~ 7/31 @Doodlewashed December sketch challenge I really enjoyed doing this sketch! #Doodlewashed #WorldWatercolorGroup #nadsart #sketch #watercolor IMG_20171211_201643_232

    PUDDING ~ 9/31 @doodlewashed December sketch prompt. I absolutely love Christmas pudding! The rich, dense, nutty, fruity steamed pudding with the flaming brandy sauce has been my favourite pudding since I was a child. It's ridiculously hot and rich for our summer South African Christmas Xmas dinners when icecream makes much more sense, but tradition is tradition, right? #Doodlewashed #WorldWatercolorGroup #nadsart #sketch #watercolor IMG_20171210_181352_067

    TREE ~ 5/31 @Doodlewashed December sketch prompt ... Another loose painting which I felt was rather messy, but fun! #Doodlewashed #WorldWatercolorGroup #nadsart #sketch #watercolor IMG_20171205_195316_849

    HOLLY ~ 4/31 @doodlewashed December sketch prompt. Here in South Africa, we don't really celebrate Christmas with holly. Holly is such a wonderful plant to cut and display in your homes in winter, with its deep, glossy green leaves and lovely red berries. #Doodlewashed #WorldWatercolorGroup #nadsart #sketch #watercolor IMG_20171205_185515_125

    CANDY CANES ~ 1/31 @doodlewashed December sketch prompt. I tried a different style to the November sketches yesterday, but I really don't like the way it looks ... like a child's colouring book picture ... sigh. So I'll carry on in the style that I seem to prefer. Growing one's art skills is hard! #Doodlewashed #WorldWatercolorGroup #nadsart #sketch #watercolor IMG_20171202_111844_397

    PEAS ~ @doodlewashed 27/30 I love green peas and enjoy up to 3 harvests from my garden each year. Most are eaten right there in the garden! @laraester02 is the only other family member who enjoys them with me. #Doodlewashed #Watercolor #WorldWatercolorGroup #nadsart 20171126_154414

    BERRIES ~ @doodlewashed 24/30. These berries were much harder to paint than they seem. I must have laid down six washes before I could create some depth ... and had to stop for fear of overworking the strawberries! Then I had lost my carefully unpainted highlights and had to use white watercolour pencils to put them back in. Now to make me. a frozen strawberry smoothie as the consolation! #Doodlewashed #WorldWatercolorGroup #nadsart #sketch #watercolor 20171124_173721

    LEMON ~ @doodlewashed November 22/30 A lovely quick sketch I enjoyed doing in the late afternoon. Now I'm off to check on dinner! 20171122_182419

    nadeneesterhuizenPumpkins ~ @doodlewashed Nov 21/30 I overworked my gouache paints and then tried to "fix" it by adding the outlines ... and now I really don't like how this sketch came out! Sigh. Anyway, I'm glad I can still practice! #Doodlewashed #WorldWatercolorGroup #gouache #nadsart #idontliketheresults 20171121_165659

    I'm loving sketching these vegetables for @doodlewashed November prompts ~ Yams 20/30 A favourite low carb veggie option instead of ordinary potatoes, and love all the different coloured yams. And, yes, I'm getting ahead of myself here, but I'm on a roll ... #Doodlewashed #WorldWatercolorGroup #watercolor #nadsart 20171120_132907

    Eggplant 19/30 I so enjoyed painting these shiny, deep purple aubergines. I have grown then in my vegetable garden last year and have found that I enjoy eating them more and more as I mature. They are delicious roasted and as a spread! Do you also enjoy eggplant? #Doodlewashed #WorldWatercolorGroup #watercolor #nadsart 20171120_113213

    Asparagus ~ 18/30 @doodlewashed prompt for November. It was so nice to take time to paint a sketch again today after 2 hectic, stressful weeks since #inktober ended. I realized again, what a calming, peaceful activity sketching provides, a perfect antidote to stress and anxiety. Just what I needed ... #Doodlewashed #WorldWatercolorGroup #nadsart 20171119_182614

    Simple pleasures - Do a little exercise - Exercise is such an important part of my day, but as I get older, I prefer doing yoga, callanetics or stretches to doing cardio or working with weights. 20170924_171130
