With Spring arriving already here in Phoenix, I’ve been playing more with my watercolors and sketching. Lately I’ve really been inspired by Tamara Laporte of Willowing. She has a wonderful way of creating whimsical girls and scenes, I love it!
I created this piece in my Strathmore 140 lb watercolor sketch pad (which I need a new one because I just used up the last page!). I added the colors with Caran D’ache classic neocolor crayons. I enjoy using these because I can put them all in a cup and use them with my Pental water brushes while sitting watching TV.
Here are some other girls I created while practicing…
I scanned my version of the whimsical girl and owl, then added some words of encouragement. She’s now available in my shop as a print, mounted print or a canvas print.
This piece is perfect for a confirmation gift or even graduation. I’ll be adding more watercolor pieces soon, so be on the look out for them!
