The pandemic has limited our traveling and I have missed my time with my young granddaughter Kaiya, who lives in a state over a thousand miles away. Along came Zoom with many possibilities for virtual family time, and we are now taking advantage of it. It’s not as good as being there, but we can still do creative things together.
So we are having Artsy Time a couple of times a month. Kaiya is already a wonderful artist, and anything she learns, she takes and puts her own creative vision on it.
For the last couple of sessions, we have been inspired by a wonderful YouTube artist Creations CeeCee. She works with watercolor and a variety of pens, and her designs are simple, beautiful, and graphic.
For our first foray into watercolor & pens, we tackled a simple vase of flowers in a vase. The design of the flowers is flat, but they are enhanced with lines made by Posca paint pens — gold lines around the flowers, and white lines on the vase, plus white dots in the floral centers.
For our next art adventure, we did watercolor mountains with lines. Again just simple landforms with decorative striping and gold accents.
As you can probably tell, I like my color bold and bright, and Kaiya likes hers serene and pastel. (Maybe my aging vision has something to do with this, hah.)
What will be our next art adventure? Stay tuned! Plus I’ll try to catch up with our past creations too.
