The prompt for week 22 of Journal52
is Wings. For me this has to involve dragonflies. I got out my Neocolor crayons and got going. I layered colour down then used water to create washes. I probably laid down about 4-5 colours to get some depth. I then doodled with a Micron pen and wrote with my Sharpie.
Here's a daily visitor to my garden. He's so friendly he can often land on your hand if you are sitting at the garden table.
He's not actually a dragon fly. He's called a Small Red Damselfly and here's a professional picture of one (so much better than my poor attempt....
Hubby and I went to the garden centre and spend quite a bit more than we estimated. He planted the large stuff up last night and I spend the morning planting the rest (and dodging the rain)
I think there was around 60 plants in all. Phew! Now all I have to do is get the dirt from under my nails!!!
Wow, Sue. Your dragonflies are amazing. I've never owned any Neocolors, but they look really intense. I'm not much of a doodler, but I adore what you made. Very creative and extremely lovely, since I can't draw anything. Trust me. I've tried!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for your visit. I was blown away by your patio. It is over the top gorgeous. Puts my meager yard (both front and back) to shame. You have a great eye for plants.
