I’m stepping away from my norm here (just for a moment, I promise) and sharing a slightly different kind of art I’ve been exploring. I’ve enjoyed pencil sketches since high school but watercolors are new for me. The video is a combination of real time and time lapse. I hope you enjoy it!

Here’s the pencil drawing before watercolors were applied.

And the final painting.

Tell me all the arts you enjoy. Let’s be art friends. ^____^

Because…just because. Go with it.

I started with basic straight lines crossing the page. This is how most lies begin.

Then I filled in all the corners of the wedges. This is the most fun step for some reason, probably because I’m a weirdo.

Now that the corners of your mind…er drawing have gone dark, vary the direction of repeated arcs within the shapes, to cover your lies from every angle. Triangular shapes are easy. The trapezoidal shapes were a bit more challenging. It’s big word Wednesday, btw.

And voila! You have a tangled web of lies, solid for a moment yet so frail as soon as a little pressure is applied.

Don’t be a liar. Liars suck.

Have you found peace in coloring this month? I have. And I’ve certainly needed it. Sheesh.

I’d love to see your colored pages! Share online with hashtag #doodleaddictedcalendar2017, share a link in the comments below or post directly to my Facebook page. (Oh yeah. I have a Facebook page now. *grin*)

Below are my color schemes suggestions for the February doodles in my 2017 Weekly Planner Doodle Art Coloring Book (available on Amazon for $9.50). If your colors are more limited than my palette, try blending pencils or simplifying the colors to basics—lavendar becomes purple, burgundy becomes red, etc. The resulting color scheme won’t always be as appealing, but experiment! These aren’t rules. They’re inspiration. ^____^

New! I started listing the colors from “use this the most” to “use this as just an accent” from top to bottom. Again, suggestion. Free your mind. Do your thang. Share it with me. I mean us. Please.

I’ve been using my calendar as a journal. How about you? What are you using yours for?

I feel like I’m in a perpetual state of recovery these past months. Maybe because I am. 😦 

As always, doodling to the rescue! It’s been a great distraction. 

As promised, I’ve put together some inspiring color schemes for the doodles in my 2017 Weekly Planner Doodle Art Coloring Book (available on Amazon for $9.50). If your colors are more limited than my palette, try blending pencils or simplifying the colors to basics—lavendar becomes purple, burgundy becomes red, etc. The resulting color scheme won’t always be as appealing, but experiment!

I present to you…January.
