Several months ago I bought watercolor cards, thinking I'd make some personalized cards for friends. Like a lot of things I never got around to it. While volunteering at the Cultural Arts Center last week I had time on my hands so I sketched a few scenes. Yesterday I was so sick. One of those sick, sick sick days. I decided it was a good time to get my mind off being sick so I did a few quick watercolors for cards for each of my granddaughters for Christmas. Love the medium and will definitely do more. I think in the future I'll do graphite pencil sketches of detail and then apply watercolor washes and end with pen. I sorta did that on these but not necessarily in that order. How soon we forget!! I just complete a drawing class where we worked on shape and shadow. I have 6 more cards in the package so I'll work on something with more detail in future. This is a great way for artist at any level to enjoy painting and to use their art to share with family and friends. Think I'll try a few botanical drawings!!
