Spring Tree Watercolor and Inks


I was looking in the Artful Blogging magazine and I was so inspired by so many of the artist/bloggers. I was really inspired by Marisa Haedike at Creative Thursday (pg 6). I love her use of colors and the whimsical nature of her paintings. I loved her tree with the little blue bird on page 8. I just had to try a tree with a touch of spring colors. I'm pleased with how it turned out and wanted to share it with you. This was created on watercolor paper with my shimmering H20 Watercolors, prisma pencils and gel pens. I think it would make nice note cards. First day of spring is March 20th!

Oh my gosh, this is the second blog I've read today with a gorgeous tree! I love it! I painted a tree last night for the first time.

I love what you've done here. The pop of color screams "Spring is almost here!" Gorgeous!!! And the background color is perfect!

xo,
