Everyone draws their food when they go
to a restaurant, don't they?! One of the
waitresses came over to see what I was
working on, but I had barely started drawing
my red water glass. I think she remembered
me from when I drew the turtle planter in
The table top presented difficulties. It was
a carved surface with glass over it. Glass is
always a challenge, with shadows, reflections,
and whatever is sitting on it...hopefully you
get the idea. I really could have eaten that
whole basket of chips by myself!
Drawing in Sharpie pen, with watercolor
pencil and water applied after I returned home.
More pages in the
"On Again~Off Again Journal...
I take along my art bag when we are taking
a road trip. Hubby drives, and I happily
paste scraps of paper and doodles into
whatever journal happens to fit into the
stuffed bag. My watercolor pencils, water brush,
and Sharpie pen are necessities,
and a few highlighter markers wouldn't
go amiss either. They can brighten up
a page considerably!
Above, the atc I sent to Elizabeth,
made from some of my doodle-painted
paper, and a little tea cup that I drew
and glued onto the background.
It felt good to make some mini~art!
You may have noticed that I added a
new page to this blog for Tutorials.
To go to the Tutorials page,
click on the tea cup at the top
of the side bar on the right.
There are only a few tutorials so far, but I
hope to add more. Stay tuned!
Linking up for the T Tuesday
blog hop over at
Bleubeard and Elizabeth's.
There's always time for tea!
