Funky Owls

      I've been working on some watercolor art journal pages.  This one is of some funky little owls.  To me they look like dad, little daughter and mom.   I asked my youngest grand-daughter if that was her and her mommy and daddy.  She thought that was funny.

       I remembered to take some pictures as I did this page.  I used Neocolor II water-soluble wax pastel crayons and pan watercolors. So here is the progression from sketch to finished page.  Hope you enjoy.

       Adding some color with Neocolor II wax
                    pastel crayons.                                         
 Blending the watercolor with brush and water.                                                        
                                                                   Adding detail with pen.
                                                               Adding more detail and shading.               
                 Finished page.

                         I did this water color sketch of cupcakes.  Just a fun little art journal page.

Lovely comment from another site where I've posted this piece: PD "Oh my Carol.. this are great.. You have got all the right squiggles in the right places. just perfect!"

Look what I found

I was so excited when I found this dress form made of iron.  I've wanted a dress form but don't have floor space for one.  I found this table top one at a fantastic price.  I'm so excited to have her on display in my studio.  EXCITED, EXCITED, EXCITED!
