Loose and Lively, ACEOs, Cherries and more, PPF
This was done with a Tradio Pen, which is not waterproof, so when you come back in after drawing the subject, using a wet brush with a touch of watercolor paint, it makes the ink run in fun and unexpected ways. This was done for a challenge on a Facebook group.
I got really loose on this one. Sewing Stuff.
ACEO watercolor and pen.
Cherry Bomb Pale Ale, Loose Watercolor ACEO
I always wanted to paint beer bottles, but my lettering is not so good, so practice makes perfect, well, at least better than last time. National Cherry Day was July 16, and our theme for 30/30 is Cherries and Cold, so the next one hits both topics, Cold Ice Cream on top of Cherry Pie.
Watercolor, pen and ink.
Pie has been on my mind for awhile, and finding a vegan version that does not cost an arm and a leg and that tastes good, with soy ice cream, and gluten free, well, let's just say, it's mostly a dream dessert. If I choose to eat dessert, I usually skip the rest of the meal, and NO GUILT.
I believe in the saying, Life is Short, Eat Dessert First. And I always remember how to spell it because everyone wants more than one dessert, so put two s's in it. No one wants more than one desert (one s). LOL.
More Cherries, this time Cerises (French) and more lettering practice. I know, it does not fit on the ACEO card, sorta runs off the edge, but that's what I get for going loose and sketchy. Next time I should plan ahea...d like they say.
