Friday Fun & Easy Landscape Challenge- Learn to Draw Julia's Spruce #Fun&EasyLandscape Step-Out @ZebraPen #DrawingTutorial #Step-by-Step @Hahnemühle_USA

Image
The Friday Fun & Easy Landscape Challenge 2/23-3/1: Draw a landscape using the Julia's Spruce Step-out.  Extra calorie-free brownie points for adding some loopty-loops to your tree.

I belong to a watercolor community called Doodlewash, where people share their watercolor work. This week, I came across this painting by Julia Proulx, and boy! did I perk up when I saw it.  I immediately realized it would be perfect for a Fun & Easy Step-out.


I asked Julia if it would be alright to use her painting and she agreed - Thank you!  She also sent me a copy of the photograph that she took, that provided the inspiration for her painting. I think I see another tree there that I can use for a second step-out too!


When drawing this tree, don't get hung up on the shapes.  Every one of these trees that exists in the whole wide world is unique and your drawing/painting should be too!  Let your unique flag fly!

Today my hubby took a British Red Squirrel in his lunch bag.  
This is the only squirrel native to the U.K. and despite the name, it comes in a variety of colors according to the season and the location.  They are endangered by the invasion of the grey squirrel.

Real life has been interfering with my online time, so I've decided to stop posting the Wednesday Links to Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways for the foreseeable future.  The Monday and Saturdays lists will still be posted.

Today my hubby took a black rhinoceros calf in his lunch bag.

Mushrooms by Moonlight #Watercolor #WorldWatercolorGroup @Hahnemühle_USA

Image
I painted this for the 'Mushrooms' challenge at Doodlewash & the World Watercolor Group yesterday.

For some reason, my scanner just won't pick up all the colors on some paintings, and this was one of them, so I had to take a photograph - not my forte.  It shows up a little brighter in places than the actual painting, but not by much.
