Good Evening,

It is wet and cold where I am writing this and we have the fire going and about to have a glass of red wine, while I am writing this.  Since finishing the ICAD challenge I have turned a bit more seriously to watercolours and sketching.

On the way home from town last week I saw a horse with its feed bucket in its mouth waving it around.  Obviously wanting something to eat.  I didn’t have time to stop and take a photo, so I drew a horse from a picture I found online and then with some concern started to paint.  I am quite happy with how it turned out and it just goes to show that anything is possible if you put your mind to it.  I am trying to draw/sketch everyday and at the moment I am doing a lot of Urban Sketching with hmmm interesting results.

I used QoR Watercolors, Strathmore cold pressed series 4 paper and Aqua brushes.

A 61 Index Card A Day Challenge


On the 1 June 2017 I took up the challenge to create art on an index card for the next 61 days.  I had no idea what I was getting myself into or what I would learn, or the friends I would make not only within New Zealand but overseas as well.  We were given prompts each day and it was up to us whether we would follow them or not.

I quickly learnt that watercolours and index cards did not work well together unless you used Water Grounds and that even then you were not able to do any wet on wet blends.

I had decided to try and learn how to draw my dog Molly who is a Shitzu-Chihuahua cross.  After 61 days I still find her difficult to draw.

I hope you enjoy looking through my cards and maybe even inspire you to try a similar challenge.

Thank you for visiting

Super Pickles

Good afternoon everyone,

Pull up a chair and a hot cup of coffee or an iced coffee.

I have a new stamp from Lacy Sunshine.  This is my individual for this month and he is called Super Pickles, but I have been calling him ninja frog, oh well it takes all sorts I guess.  Super Pickles is part of Lacy Sunshine Superheroes colouring book, volume 20.  Super Pickles has been coloured with copics and then added to a Art Journal page which has been done using Dylusions paints.  This background was completed a few weeks ago, when I was having a play, as you do. It is perfect for Super Pickles.



Thank you so much stopping by and I hope you enjoyed your visit.  I look forward to you stopping by again soon.

Cheers Yvonne
