My usage of
lime green, sky blue and pink really
enhance "spring fever" in my drawings.
Funny how the various seasons influence my
choice in colour pallet.
My favourite medium of late; watercolour pencils.
Along with my extremely fine line perm markers.
Acco brand pencils (made in UK) are so wonderful. I couple them with
Staedtler pencil (made in Germany).
On a whim, I bought discounted markers from a local
art/crafts store. They were so marked down, I just
thought I could trash them if need be.
However, I have found these Martha Stewart brand
markers to be GREAT! With their .1mm tips, I love the
very fine line I am able to make.
I do have several Koh-I-Noor Rapidograph pens,
which have an array to nibs/tips I love.
But for the easy carefree use, these Martha Stewart
writing pens are delightful!
Well I'm off for now. To create more and enjoy this lovely holiday weekend.

Having finally found the parcels mailed to many moons ago AND
unexpectedly seeing the wee flirty blue bird upon leaving work (see previous post).
I've been inspired and motivated!
Life changes, losses and unexpected events can turn
a person inside out!
Happily, once the shock of this has subsided life resumes
a natural progression, happily.

As I was leaving work
yesterday, I noticed this wee bird near my car.
This feathered cutie would fly from the mirror to the sign post, and back.
While at the mirror, the bird would flirt with itself.
During this whole ordeal, there was another birdie who sat near by, watching!
Nature is so silly at times!
