Reaching for the Sun

Feeling like more warm colors on this blustery Valentine’s Day. This was brought to you by Inktense blocks, Neocolor II water-soluble crayons, and Liquitex soft body acrylic paint (just a touch).


I’m hoping to create a collage with this later. Also experimented with a Valentine’s gift from Hub, which is the Dr. Ph Martin’s Bombay inks. Woo, talk about saturated color! A little goes a loooooooong way. Will be cutting up both paintings and making a little who knows what! Having some mixed media fun this weekend.

I hope everyone in the northern hemisphere is staying warm and that everyone else is staying cool and….Happy Valentine’s Day to all! πŸ˜€

      1. I dipped into the inks and wow, I agree, they will take some getting used too. I’m still getting used to the neo’s but sometime this week I’ll have something. At the moment I’m water coloring a gopher plant that is growing in my garden, I’ll post it later today. So many supplies to have fun with, my head is spinning haha!

        1. It’s the best kind of spinning though! Looking forward to your painting. I just realized with the neos – I’m usually always working abstract or semi abstract. Well, I take that back. Many of the fall leaves I did last year were done with them. And I did one frog but the pen underdrawing was bad and so I don’t think I ever posted it. I think it’s like anything else, getting used to the medium but they are so wonderful. I had no idea when I bought these how much I would fall in love with them! They beat out my Polychromos for the best art supply ever. I hope you wind up loving them too!


I'd love to hear from you! Constructive criticism is most appreciated. Thank you!
