Button Garland & Ink Bottles


I was looking at some watercolor paintings by an artist that has had a strong impact on my work recently. I don't often look at his watercolors, but when I did, for the first time in years I was inspired to find my inks and pull them from the heap of my forgotten art materials.

I did 3 small paintings in my sketchbook. I haven't painted anything in my sketchbook since like 2 sketchbooks ago. Since then and until now, it had been all writing. I decided to post the last painting for everyone to see. I'm very happy with how it turned out... a fun and successful exploration with a medium I had abandoned. Luckily, I also discovered that my sketchbook pages support wet mediums...
