This is my DIY DS palette! This is everything I got from @arterssg . The all white tubes are part of the 5ml Primatek set and the tubes with black are individual 5ml tubes that I got after the Primatek convinced me to get more 😂😂😂This palette is a mix of both Primatek and the Extra Fine colours, and I got these on the basis of adding different and unique colours to my existing stash. I have an empty palette box that I take for travel and from there I pick and choose the colours I will need for my destination. My husband commented on all the empty spaces in this palette and gave me a knowing smirk. 😏😂 Are you thinking what I'm thinking B1? Swipe for all the close ups and the corresponding tubes!
Day 82...lost pumpkin.
I love pumpkins. They are so bright and colorful. They also mean autumn is here. The leaves are going start changing colors and world is going to look all colorful. YAY!
Okay back to the pumpkin. I am happy with how it turned out. In fact it is pretty close to what I envisioned, which doesn't happen all that often. Only thing that kind of irks me, is that it looks to be slightly floating. I put a lot and I mean a lot of shadow color underneath it but I think it still needs more.
Today's Doodlewashed "Simple Pleasures" ~ Playing a game! I thought of 'Rock, Paper, Scissors', a fun game to play without needing anything. I tried a different approach to the one I normally paint and worked layers with no ink outlines first. I'm quite happy with the result.
Hello Artists! Do you know how to ride a bike? I don't know how to ride it...yet, but I enjoyed seeing bikes everywhere I go, particularly this bike standing against the yellow wall. Join me for a painting demo of this 🚴🏻 scene by going to the link in profile and selecting Youtube. 🎨👆
Enjoy learning and creating! 😊
This painting will be part of a silent auction/dance/music fundraising event by @sea_busdancecompany this Saturday in Columbus, Ohio. I'm excited to be contributing and looking forward to the event! And you're invited too! Check out their page for details. 💚
Here's some of my Doodlewashed's September "Simple Pleasures" sketches from this past week. The first picture is the simple pleasure of cuddling a pet, so I sketched Kate cuddling her cat. 2nd sketch is about the simple pleasure of laughing until it hurts, and the third sketch is the simple pleasure of fresh socks.
It's so good to be sketching and painting again! #nadsart#doodlewashed#WorldWatercolorGroup#sketch#watercolors
