WWM: Day 12 Moms Stuff Dragonfly

This was a garden decoration, and my mom always had great flower gardens.

I saw quite a bit of pink in the greys, and so went with the mauve-pink.
I used Super5 Frankfurt ink for the waterproof lines.
I sketched 2 fluid ink colors that would move when water touched them,
Diamine Grey ink and De Atramentis Tobacco ink.

When I hit them with water they moved across the pinkish watercolor.
Not quite what I imagined but a fun experiment.
I may try another.

“Paint as you like and die Happy!*”

Want to join in the fun?
Use the hashtag #WorldWatercolorMonth
when you post your drawing on any platform,
and add your watercolor to the gallery!
And come join Doodlewash…
find you tribe…  I’m there!

    I finally got a picture of a dragon fly last month. I was so excited! I do like the pink tones on this.
