My drawing and painting life

More quick watercolor sketches


I picked a handmade journal for the work in Wonderland class. A little while ago I threw some paint on some of the pages, random marks of acrylic paint (mostly turquoise blue and purple). The other day late at night I thought I’d just play and put some watercolor paint on top. Just for fun, as at that time I didn’t see what could be done on these pages. I thought they were wrecked by the acrylic. But working the paint I suddenly saw options to make something on both pages. I love it how this has worked to free me up to ‘just go’.

The left one is a kind of Cheshire Cat. This fits well with the Alice in Wonderland theme – but it was quite unintentional that painting would lead to this.Β  Ha, I remember teachers telling us to just make some marks on a page to make it less precious. Well, it definitely worked here!

Process notes

I am feeling really good about the year of daily creating, right now. I may have missed a couple of days in January, but this month will give plenty of options to add a few extra paintings to the set. Even the art work done on this day – a drawing session and these two – almost makes up for that.

Suddenly I feel that I’m almost halfway this year of daily creating. March 1st is the halfway mark. Exciting, isn’t it?

Feb 9 / day 162 out of 365.

    Love your Cheshire Cat, Corinne! It has a wonderful grin on its face! I like the playfulness in your other cat too. And congrats on creating daily for almost half a year! YAHOO!!! πŸ™‚
