Sunshine after snow

We had a little snowstorm yesterday, and even though time was short, I just had to bring a little sunshine and flowers into my artwork.   Brought to you today by Inktense blocks and Neocolor II water-soluble pastels.


Enjoy! And have a wonderful Wednesday, good people. Thanks for stopping by and encouraging me with your visits and comments!  It means an awful lot! Peace.

  1. Hi Laura, what is Inktense blocks? Is that a type of paper? Super love for your pastels, they say spring and warm sunshine to me! Certainly helps me break out of the 5 degrees fog I’m in this morning. My smallest dog jumped on my lap and stuck his head in my robe and fell asleep -hibernation seems to be the theme in my house.

    1. Thanks! I never know when I pick these things up how it will go, but sometimes it works out great. I think I fussed a bit much with the water and of course, no patience, so I almost made a bit of mud there, but I liked the immediacy of it. We need color right now, and the more the better so I had to post! 😀 Glad you enjoyed.

  2. Certain to please on a winter day. Tulips are my favorite flower, so simple is the form, tightly closed in the beginning and in only hours will open to celebrate spring. Thanks you for sharing this lovely symbol of spring Laura.

    1. Donna, thank you so much! Honestly, if you had a set of these Neocolors… could really do this. You don’t have to be an artist to do this. You can see how basic the lines and shapes are; this isn’t a drawing effort at all. It’s just getting some life on the paper, mixing up the colors a bit. You’d be amazed at what those Neos can do. I’m really glad you enjoyed it!

      1. Maybe I do have a hidden talent since Mom did and my daughter does. Hmmmmm…..maybe someday when life slows down I will try. I did take an one-day watercolor painting class probably 20 years ago. I see mistakes in it but everyone else thought it was awesome. I did get it custom-framed so I can brag with one piece of artwork, lol. 🙂
