I bought these new sparkly ink dye pens on HSN and decided to try them to see if I liked them. I did three postcard size paintings. The sparkle doesn't show very well in photography, but I do like the mood they created being reproduced.

However the pens sort of leaked and were kind of messy. There was almost as much color on me as on the watercolor paper. With this kind of leakage I didn't think they would last long. They were expensive and not very cost effective. I did enjoy trying them out, but I returned them.

A friend of mine owns a Gallery right nearby in Milford. She got this cute little kitten to keep her company in her store. I was so taken with this kitty, that I promised myself I would watercolor her. So here she is.

This was done without drawing anything first. I took a brush and put pink where I wanted flowers and green where I wanted leaves. Then I loosely painted in the flowers, working brushstrokes of color around them to help them become one with the background. Fun working on this one because I was free to just feel the painting as I worked and allow the medium lead me.

I love watching birds this time of the year. A friend of mine has a feeder right outside of her kitchen window, and while visiting her, I couldn't help but watch the birds enjoying their feast of seeds. It inspired me to sketch and paint a little post card size bird. I choose a blue bird because I love their colors.

I found this tinted watercolor paper in my stash and have been using it to do some small floral paintings. These are Stargazer Lilies painted on a blush tinted paper.
