"MARS MAGIC HOLLYHOCKS" #2 - DAY 3 OF 30 PAINTINGS IN 30 DAYS - SOLD!

This was a day of about . . . three fails.  No, maybe four.  I tried a few new things and none of them worked out very well.  So, I went back to my hollyhocks and decided to finish that one up before I started anything else.  I spent the first day drawing and now it will take two sessions to paint.  My weather app says, "82 degrees with plentiful sunshine".   My plan is to spend this beautiful late summer day with a brush and a trowel - finishing this painting and primping in my garden.

So, by tomorrow at this time this one should be finished.  Here is tonight's progress.  I'm working this one with a deckled edge on very heavy, archival paper so it can be mounted ON TOP of mat board, or UNDER a cut mat.


"MARS MAGIC"
11.5 x 11.5 inches
(pen/ink/watercolor on 300# Arches cotton paper)
SOLD!



This is a perennial hollyhock!  Most of them are biennials, but this one is long-lived and blooms the very first season.

More flower watercolors are available in my etsy shop:

Thanks for looking!

Hi, Nan. Really enjoyed your blog this week-end after starting the 30 paintings challenge. What waterproof marker/inkpen do you use for your drawing? I would like to find one with a smaller nib than the fine Sharpies I have been using.

Thanks Stephie and Queen of 'arts! As for the pen, I really like the TechLiner and Micron brands. Both come in waterproof ink and dry quickly so you can watercolor right away. The smaller tips range from .01 to .05 - what you use is kind of personal preference.

Thanks for looking!

YOU COULD MAKE THAT IS ON FACEBOOK!
