Anemone for a Birthday Card. Made with Arteza Woodless WC Pencils (LOVE these) using my new favorite color Blue Denim. The background is actually some new KOH-I-NOOR cream colored drawing paper, 90lb. I love it for line and wash. Got in on sale at Fisher Hawaii last week.

Wonder why the paper came out blue (not cream) in the photo? I shot the photo outside today but the sun was behind the clouds.  I've already sealed the card in the envelop so will do another one on cream -colored paper and take a photo of it indoors.  If that one comes out with a blue background, I will have to surmise that it's the paper that is making it blue, not the daylight.

Pretty flower, lovely color blue.   The camera always changes things, I can never figure it out.

Thanks, Mary Lou

Hard to believe that I was terrified by the thought of using ink when PB first added it to the mix of media.  Now I love it.

I am working with hydrangea.  Love to use these for greeting cards for my friends. Daniel Smith watercolors and Arches 140 lb cold press paper. Escoda round brushes.  And a couple squirts of Ken Oliver Color Burst powder. Micron pen .005

Am going to be making more.  Any suggestions for improvement?

I really like these.  I like the looseness with the detail over it.  The colors are pretty.  Very appealing.   :clap: :clap: :clap:

I think less detail in the flower would be better, just hints of petals, here and there...just my thought...as I think the all those little outlined flowers are a distraction...see what others think.

I like your anemone and the hydrangea card idea and thanks for the information about the articles, Mea. I am sure the recipients will cherish this.  O0

"Petri Dishes" is my title for this piece.  It's 14 x 11 done on the smooth side of 140lb watercolor paper.  Used the Dr. PH Martin India Inks and Staedler #8 for the black marks (design on a fly swatter).

I am really loving this one.  What do you think - maybe a whole series of petri dishes in different colors??
