…at florals! What a way to celebrate May Day, huh? These tulips were done with a Polychromos colored pencil. I still think colored pencil is a fun medium, especially with the Polys. The only problem is, it can take awhile. You could go on layering forever, if you wanted to. It’s pretty zen though.
This painting is the size of a business card. It’s all watercolor: rose madder and sap green….and maybe another color I’m forgetting (but I don’t think so). It was quick and simple, but I did have to sketch it in pencil first. I tried working without a sketch, but you wouldn’t wanna wake up in the morning to that, lol. I’m pretty pleased with this, and totally hooked on making very small watercolor paintings. I’ll hopefully have more of those to share with you tomorrow.
With petals floating in the breeze, it’s time to celebrate the first weekend in May! It’s bound to be a beauty. Treat yourself to something wonderful today. Life is not a dress rehearsal. Peace, everyone.
