Watercolors & Doodles…

Nice sunny day here…nice but windy.  Arkansas, thankfully,  did escape the tornadoes that went through some states last week.

I was playing with my pens and watercolors this morning.  I was inspired by Jennifer Mercede’s work.  I was reading about her over at Pam Garrison’s blog.  Pam has posted some of her own beautiful art work…click on the link to take a look.  Jennifer has many unique giraffe doodle drawings, among others,  over at Flickr.  I attempted to draw a giraffe.  I haven’t used watercolors on it yet.  I need to see about getting a better set of watercolors…my set is  Prang…choice of eight colors.  The pen I used is a bold Pilot G-2 (07).  It isn’t waterproof but I kind of liked how the ink mixed with the watercolors.  I’ll be working on postcards the rest of the week  for iHanna’s yearly postcard swap.

    Giraffes are fun to draw. They’re pretty silly to begin with, so even if it’s not drawn photo realistic no one seems to know the difference. 🙂

    Oh that giraffe is so cute! Glad to know that you got the journal. And thanks as always for your kind words.

    Love your giraffe! I somehow forget how tall they really are. And my reaction to seeing them never fails to amuse my wife. I mean, obviously they’re tall… but, wow… they are really, really tall!
