Floral Mutation


Yesterday, Tracy Weinzapfel gave a free demo at Alice Hendon’s Tangle All Around Facebook group.

I painted along, and got a little carried away with all those petals.. I think it looks a bit like it’s taken flight, with a propeller center spinning away. I kind of like it, lol!

If you are interested, you can watch the demo on YouTube or take advantage of Alice’s group by joining, watching the video there, and sharing your work with the hundreds of member there.

Tea Tree in the Rain


#Doodlewash prompt: Rain.

It isn’t really a tea tree – just a tree I drew on a Butterfly Peaflower tea background. Another of the drawings done while waiting at the airport.

Done with Zebra Zensations Technical Pen and Butterfly Peaflower tea on Hahnemühle Agave Cold-Press watercolor paper with ZenArt Black Tulip brushes.

Birthday Bouquet with Glass Vase


#doodlewashMay2021 prompt: Glass.

My birthday was last week, and one of my gifts was a beautiful bouquet of flowers and another was a collection of sketchbooks. Unfortunately, since I was visiting in Florida, I had to leave the bouquet behind when I left for home.

But I used one of the sketchbooks to capture the bouquet forever! Along with a photo or two.

I haven’t got to it, but I intend to do the birthday cake too. I did get to take much of it home – in the form of bulges around my waist! That cake looked so much better before I ate it!

The Fishing Cat


#doodlewashMay2021 prompt: Fishing.

Did you know that the wild Fishing Cat, of South and Southeast Asia, has a layer of fur next to its skin, so dense that water cannot penetrate. Handy for an animal that likes to hunt underwater!
