Funny lines and funny shapes

Still locked down, still scratching at the walls… Twitch under my left eye strong and continuous. Started listening to Kyuss again. What does this all mean? Meh, who cares, look, bright colours and funny shapes! Hehe

Been experimenting a lot with Brusho paints. They are volitile but I love the fact you never know what’s going to happen!

Floral Abstract Doodle

Started the day trying to paint delicate flower petals with watercolour paints… Ended up going a bit crazy with ink and promarkers! It’s a bit crazy but I think there’s something pretty wild about it! It totally distracted me from carrying on trying to really learn how to paint all day though!

Sunday Ink Swishing

Twitching, itching and flicking ink all over the place again. Sunday’s art dinner is served! Hehe, I really need to get a plan together for next week, furlough madness will not win! At least The Great Pottery Throwdown is on in a bit, bloody love that show. Really hope to get some clay out when I have the space!

Today’s Experiment

Trying out some powdered paints today called Brusho. A very messy experiment but a ton of fun! Amazingly vibrant if used in moderation, they flow into each other easy, and keep going even when you think it’s stopped! Need more practice. Thank goodness Hobbycraft restocked on watercolour paper today, well stocked now for a few months!

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!

Autumn Vibey Hues

Thought I would use the side of the watercolour pallette that I never use today,. So browns, tan, heavy greens. Gave me an autumn vibe. Felt a bit melancholic in the end, so best get back to the vibrant colours while the winter is in full swing. At least all this paint is holding back the furlough insanity… I think!

Watercolor Doodle Fun

Someone treated herself to some Rotring Isograph pens for Christmas, and then opened her presents too early… That someone was totally me! Hehe. So many circles, so many. Pretty sure I can see an eye and a weird mouth in there. What do you see?
