    This was my first attempt with Kelly Eddington’s Strathmore Workshop, and using my Winsor Newton Cotman tube set, and using my Silver Brush Black Velvet brushes. I’ve always had such control with the WN WC Markers as well as my Albrecht Durers, that it was a riot of fun splashing liquid watercolours. LOL I’m going to repeat this project every day to get better with the water levels on the brushes. Oh - I played with a rake brush for a bit more grass texture, a carryover technique from my oil days. 15977045-D7DC-448D-BFDF-039A977F4902

    My current WiP is for a Valentine’s Day Card challenge. I’m using Inktense on a 5x7 Fabriano Artistico Extra White Hot Press that I will attach to a card. I will do one more layer of colour and then when dry will begin doing some detailing with Micron Black and White Uniball Signo pens. DC362ACF-30BE-411B-AE81-C0995B4C3B1C

    Thank you. It works well for my need. I also use it for the bottom half of my coloured pencil easel as I prefer that in a more vertical format so I put my lazysusan/light pad easel on top of that and the guard on this piece holds the top easel in place nicely.

    My tip for today isn’t really a tip but an idea I thought to share. Its my makeshift easel that I use on my laptray. It’s a laptop cooling fan with repositionable tilting angles. I slip it into a plastic bag to protect the electronic portion. It’s very lightweight and portable. 99C689A6-3CDD-4135-8337-67480F1B1F17

    This is what I’ve been testing - the new Canson vs. my Strathmore. Both journals are 140# cold press, acid free (not cotton) and I used/I’m using my Winsor & Newton Watercolour Markers; used/using the same brushes; also using the same reference photo for the piece. But ... I’m having really different results. The Canson wouldn’t let the pigment move very well. It just kind of stuck, leaving me with unintended outlines. You can already see the differences. 4EB23806-F9F9-4C27-91D3-68754B97F746

    I started this early November for my hubby but then his health postponed it and now I’m dealing with health issues so it may still be here a month from now. lol It’s FC Polychromos and Derwent ProColour on Art Spectrum ColourFix Smooth 9x12.

    My current WIP: Albrecht Durers and Museum Aquarelles; on Clairefontaine Pastelmat 9x12; Photo Reference of Pixabay. This is the 4th in a series of windmills (the blades will be added after I’m sure my sky is set) that are symbolic heritage pieces for my adult children, my sister and her 4 sons. I will be painting windmills for a while to come yet. lol 965705D7-A3EB-481A-A603-887FD397CF2E
