Furlough Insanity Level 10

Ok, must stay calm, running out of my favourite pink paint (who would have thought pink would be an obsessive colour), down to my last 15 sheets of watercolour paper, and there’s no sign of furlough ending any time soon. Just going to put my head between my knees and rock for a while.

There maybe be an ink shortage in the foreseeable future too… Waaaagghhhh!

New Year New Doodles

Happy new year everyone! I spent the festive period really obsessing over abstract ink and watercolour doodles. I treated myself to a Kuretake Fountain Brush Pen No.13 (get an ink adaptor, these babies loooooove ink) and I’ve not been able to put it down since! There’s something really satisfying about using real ink, filling up the pens, and having a thicker flow go on the paper. But anyway, enough of my new kink. Here are a few of my new works on A4 watercolour paper.

Exploding Spring Abstract Watercolour Ink Doodle Art Painting by Shelly Still

This one I’ve named Exploding spring, as.. well, one of the pens exploded (my fault, over filled!) and it is vibing on us all waiting for the Spring to arrive! Close up and photo of the original watercolour underneath the ink

Let me know what you think! It’s a bit of a change to my past artwork, but I’m feeling it’s the way forward, I’m very happy to explore it more. I think I’ve created about 30 pieces so far and can start to see a pattern with certain shapes in them. Art is like cracking a code sometimes huh?

Albert Brush Pen Abstract Watercolour Ink Doodle Art Painting by Shelly Still

This one I have nicknamed Albert, after the pocket watches. Not sure why it reminded me of watches though! It’s been great to keep photographic track on the work this time round, though I’m a nightmare for sorting out the photos once I’ve downloaded!
