A is for Armadillo. The only attractive thing about this animal is the pattern on its armour. Without getting too fussy and detailed I used a white crayon to make some marks that resemble the pattern and then watercolored over that. It sort of worked. It’s very hard to see the white crayon on the white paper.
Another plant flowering now.
Happy Fourth of July!
My black ink got runny – even though it says its waterproof. 😦 I seem to be following the blooms around the yard. 🙂
Already bending the rules a little, this is a watercolor sketch done near the end of June – but posted in July!
One of the main goals of watercolor month is to raise awareness of the need for art education and supplies for students through the Dreaming Zebra Foundation. I’ve put this link in my sidebar so you can check that out too.
July has been declared #WorldWatercolorMonth and it seems like a fun idea to me. I’ll try to post a watercolor every day in July but don’t know if I’ll succeed. If you want to join in or want to know more about it you can go here https://doodlewash.com/world-watercolor-month-july-2016/ on

HAVE A MOKIE CHRISTMAS!!!
The Mokie Chronicles No. 18 – Discovery is in response to Susanna Leonard Hill’s 2nd annual pretty much world famous illustrators contest [Deadline Today!]:
Of course, Mokie came to mind (when doesn’t she). 🙂
So, without further adieu, Here is Mokienaught!!!!
Is she chasing the rabbit on the moon? or maybe looking for Pluto?
Today on my bike ride I stopped by the gazebo at the front gate and painted a small (5×7) watercolor of the marsh there.
I used Fabriano hot pressed 140 lb. paper and not very many colors. Manganese blue, Quinacridone gold, Quinicradone sienna and green gold – all Daniel Smith.
Sort of an abstract, scribbled sketch. 🙂
The Mokie Chronicles – No. 17 – Happy Birthday Mokie!!!
