I love love love these watercolors, they have a lot of pigment and were very inexpensive. (I got to pick them out and my sister just sent them along to me.) The postcards are made of a really high quality paper and work wonderfully with my paints. Also, having never used brushes that hold water in the barrel I don't think I could go back now. They make water coloring so much easier!
This was a 3-pack set with large, medium, and small size brushes.
This was my first attempt at a postcard, and as an abstract I'm very happy with it. It looks like a beautiful almost unearthly sunset. I also like my trees, foliage has never been easy for me to render, so I'm really proud of them!
Zauberbear. When my sister's package arrived a few days after Christmas, I already had my resolutions planned out and I was determined to begin on them right away, so I decided to paint Carly a version of one of her photos and ask her to be my pen pal. Hopefully we'll exchange a few letters and maybe even packages throughout the year and both of our mailboxes will be a happier place for it.
This was my second painting and I have to say it is my favorite so far. My sister is in the Air Force and has been stationed in Hawaii for the last few years. She's made lots of good friends, explored and hiked breathtaking locales, and met the love of her life there. Now, said husband and her have bought a house in Chicago Illinois and will be moving here to the mainland at the end of the month.
Driving on the way to drop these beautiful babies off at the post office! Before I sent them off I made sure to spray them with a clear matte spray paint to protect the colors and keep them from running in case of "rain, sleet, snow or hail".
I had to pick up some amazing stamps at the post office because how could I resist!? These were released for the 75th Batman anniversary that was early last year. I could barely stand to use them but I also couldn't reasonably spend 10.00 on stamps I was just going to look at so I slapped 2 of these onto my cards and sent them on their way!
Til Next Time!
