She Blooms in Ink

Hello dear blog friends, I hope you are doing well during this busy season.

All is well here and I'm super excited to be taking a 7 week workshop with Tamara Laporte of Willowing Arts - She Blooms in Inks.      Lots of doodling and inkiness along with whimsical/stylized faces.  Below are my two journal pages from Week 1:










Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,
Shirley

Shirley, these are melt my heart gorgeous! I love the sincere, humble sweetness in the very feminine faces, radiating light from deep within. Your color choices are amazing, and the doodling, again, is sweet. By sweet, I mean genuinely kind. You are a true artist. Love, de

They both look so beautiful and delicate with the little details in the background. You are so good in this! Hope you stay warm; here I wake up in a wet world and 4 hours later it al was covered wiyh a beautiful pack of snow! Hugs, Gerrina

Hello Shirley, I see another nice face very well designed. I like the eyes shining so bright, the soft colored background, all of this image. I hope you have fun with Tamara's workshop and feel well.
Have a lucky and cosy wintertime.
Happy December

Two gorgeous ladies Shirley and your watercolouring gets more and more beautiful with each creation. I love the colours on both and the leafy swirls with little hanging hearts are so pretty, and the pretty flowers go beautifully. Hope you are having a good weekend. Take care. x
