December Doodle

My CLmooc friends doodle every day. 

And Este Macleod class today — hers is watercolor media, mine is digital watercolor.  It’s a wreath of green, orange, yellow, red, magenta, teal using foliage stencils I created with the number three.

foliage stencils created using the number three

As noted in “Wreath of Circles,” I found brushes that act like watercolor– blending the colors as I layer the paint with my brush. The brush I used for painting to blend colors is the “Bloom and Bleed” brush from the “Messy Extras” in Every-Tuesday Teela Cunningham’s Messy Watercolor brush set, for which she has a complete class for building beautiful messy watercolor style paintings.

Even though created digitally, I still followed Este’s strategies and find her teaching helps me be more creative. Who would have thought I could create foliage with the number three?
