Three Squashes

Did you know that the word squash derives from an Algonquin word, “askutasquash”, which means “eaten raw”?

I used my drawing yesterday as my official take on the Doodlewash prompt because I ran out of time, but I wanted to do something more complex. I’ve also been trying to find the time to try acrylic on Bamboo paper, and this seemed the perfect subject.

I’m impressed with how well the Bamboo paper handles both watercolor and acrylic, not to mention other media as well.

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.
