Drawing at Night

I felt the urge to draw last night and whipped up some new bookmarks. I had great fun designing some brown felt owls for my subjects in addition to some mushrooms, birds, and gnome cottages.

I settled down for some painting today and coloured them up.

I am really enjoying coming up with each design, and it feels good to practice painting. There are still some hit and misses with it (one of the mushroom ones didn't turn out the way I wanted it to), but I am very happy with some of the other ones. It seems that less is more, when it comes to watercolour painting.

I am going to keep practicing. Next up are some larger bookmarks.

I really love these - I think they would make wonderful quilt/applique designs.

I think they're really cool and could easily be sold as small art pieces. Are they prints?
