My drawing for today!

Did my drawing in a sketchbook...then decided to add color using watercolors, but I realize now that if I'm going to be working with watercolors, I need to use watercolor paper. Using watercolors on drawing paper gives a result that I'm not pleased with.

love the plant and adding watercolour was a great idea!

I really like the flowing colors of your leaves. I like the Robert Bateman sketchbooks. They are heavier paper 100 lbs. I think. They take pen and watercolor nicely though the pages in my books do get wavy but I like that.

Thanks for all your positive comments.

Your watercolor is lovely!

Is that a silk-dye painting that I see stretched on a frame behind you in your portrait? I have done 3 big quilted pieces that can be seen on my blog - in the threads category.

Gorgeous colors!
I prefer watercolor paper also, but this is wonderful!
