watercolours - wet trike, lost mitts, red kite

I have been so inspired lately by things around me when I go for walks, here's three watercolour paintings I did today. Trying to keep things and the paintings simple, thinking of a series called "footprints", no matter what we do one item of ours can tell a story, thinking of natural objects with one our our man made items left behind that tells a story of some kind or provotes some type of story.

hulkbuster wip

A certain someone is obsessed with the hulkbuster from watching Lego marvel superheroes avengers reassembled (that I worked on at Arc!). So the kitchen table keeps getting taken over by our costume making. First time paper maching since highschool.

watercolour day

I'm so inspired by living in Port credit, I have so many ideas that I want to try and explore. Today I pulled out the water colours and went crazy. It's frustrating getting the right colours, and starting to learn that less is more with watercolours.

no coffee?!?!?!?!

it's been a busy couple of weeks with a new baby. Lot's of people ask what I've been up to. Last weekend I went to Port Credit's artfest and was completely inspired. Currently gessoing some canvas hoping to paint out all of the ideas running through my head!! Also, watching tutorials on painting water, my mind has been blown with an amazing new technique I want to try!

So many ideas so little time, and sometimes energy. I have been keeping my promise over the last two weeks of sketching everyday. I bring my little sketchbook with me everywhere, as my long walks with the new baby seem to make me really creative.

Unfortunately this morning I discovered we were out of coffee. I got by with a 2km walk to Starbucks and art therapy. Some mornings are rough, especially when you have run out of coffee.
This drawing is based on real events, there was iron man this morning and someone wanting to eagerly ride bikes to get a bracelet, my hair length may have been dramatized.

Originally drew with an HB pencil, but it's too light to see, so did a quick pass with ink.
