Pointsettia Holiday Card


 I couldn't wait to paint this cheery bright red Pointsettia holiday tutorial by Diane Antone.

I transferred the available sketch on to my 5x7" Canson 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper using my light pad.

For this card I used Winsor Newton Cotman watercolor tube and added a Micron 01pen for detailed lines. This painting is a great addition to my holiday card collection.

Holly Christmas in Watercolor

 

Here's another card for my holiday card collection. I love painting Diane Antone's tutorials from her sketches! I am painting each one on 5x7" Canson watercolor paper. After I paint the design I adhere the painting to a card.

I transferred her sketched design using my light pad to get it onto my watercolor paper.

For this card I used Winsor Newton Cotman watercolor tubes.

Cornacopia Line and Wash

 

 This watercolor line and wash is from sketches and tutorials on Diane Antone's website and Utube channel.

I used Jane Davenport watercolors on Canson 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper to paint this sketch. The line was done with a Micron Pen.

I know I will be painting a lot more of Diane Antone's sketches in the future.

Rock Bound Lake with Onlooker

 

This Rock Bound Lake is one of several mountain lessons in a tutorial by Paul Clark. I placed a hand painted digital image to the top called "I Wish I Was There," from The Paper Shelter Digital Stamp Company.

The lake scene was painted some time ago on Canson 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper, using Winsor Newton Cotman Watercolor tubes.


 

I used Jane Davenport watercolors to paint the digital image, enhancing it with a black Micron 01 pen. I cut the image out and adhered it to the watercolor painting.

Love Lives Here Art Journal Page

 

I found so many great whimsical houses on Pinterest and decided to fill up one of my single pages with a colorful one.

I have a large stash of scrap booking ephemera to build the page over a collage and acrylic paint.

The Julie Nutting stamped girl was colored with Copic Markers and paper pieced.

Such a fun idea!
