Sometimes, on a cloudy day, you can smell the rain that hasn’t come yet. You can feel the heavy dampness in the air. And it feels okay to stay inside and do some creative project that you’ve been working on for a while or one that you let go of because you were just too busy to keep up with it. Today was one of those days when my world was stuck underneath that impenetrable sky. The creative project that I’ve been working on in April is the series of 20 pictures in blendable marker, liquid watercolor, and regular markers. It’s been such a fun and colorful adventure. Blendable markers are a completely new medium for me. In the process of creating this series (today, I made picture number 17), I discovered how much I love this medium. It is user friendly, like a marker while giving a watercolor effect. I am looking forward to doing more with this medium and making a bigger collection of colors, especially blues and purples. The other new-to-me medium is liquid watercolor. So much fun and so easy to use.
