I’ve enjoyed providing each week a “Wednesday Warm Up,”— a day of usually quick drawing, inking, brushing as warm up to our serious art. I share a strategy to try each Wednesday using the iPad app ProCreate.
Another look at what some of my CLmooc friends and I participate in each day– this time what we call #SeptemberDoodle — this time #doodlewashSeptember2021 “tree” and so I decided to try a new style based on the work of my #clmooc friend Simon Ensor. I’d need to try new brushes— this is mostly Gesinsky Ink brush in the Artistic set.
I was inspired by some amazing people and their poetry and images on Sept 18 and 19:
I had just returned from my walk on Sept 18 during which I’d take a ton of pictures of old trees in Cole Park around Fiddle Creek, including these [and my tweet]:
And all of Simon’s Steller stories:
So– I decided to try a bit of style change and follow the lead of Simon’s work to see if I could possibly try something like that.
I needed to find the right brushes, so I played around and decided on these native brushes:
- In Artistic
Gesinski Ink – streaky bark
Hartz, Leatherwood— textures on tree
Hartz – background of tree
Hartz — ground
Aurora – leaves and shadows on ground
- In Charcoal
Willow charcoal — shading of ground, lower tree
- In Organic
Snowgum – leaves of poppies
- In Inking
Tinderbox — for poppy stems
- In Drawing
- In Elements
Clouds — for cloud texture of sky background
I decided to use the Chiffon canvas in Lisa Glanz’s AquaReal Watercolor Brush set– be sure to get the commercial license. I adapted it to 13×13 inches at 300 dpi.

Thank you to all my family and #clmooc friends for your inspiration. The drawing prompts are fun and often lead to learning and more products for sharing on your POD sites. The poetry is fluid and extraordinary. You many want to follow the #clmooc hashtag on Twitter to be inspired. For instance, look at the amazing resources on trees shared by Simon through tweets:
