Mis?Adventures in Watercolor-Spalted Pecan


If you are on Twitter you may have discovered a daily paper that is produced by edisonpenco, the Writing Instruments Daily. If not, and you are interested in pens, paper and jounals, I recommend you follow him (her? him, I think, lol).

In today’s issue, there was a link to some Spalted Pecan vases.  They were gorgeous!  I wanted to hold one and just rub my hands over them to feel the texture.

So, I did the next best thing–I tried recreating the texture with watercolor.  Eh.  I think I got an onion instead, but hey!  That’s how you learn!  This was done entirely with my Koi watercolors-Yellow Ochre, Burnt Umber & a touch of Cobalt Blue Hue.

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.
