Joyful colors

It's been some weeks since Mr Sun came and stayed a while longer..
and so last Sunday was a day of painting and art making....
I painted some papers for collage
and I've been connected to these colors..



pages from my watercolor sketchbook 



and a page from my other art journal 

stay happy...

So very lovely! I wish I could draw and paint. There was a time many years ago when I could but doesn't come so easily to me anymore. :/ Hope your day is great. Tammy

Beautiful, I love you pages. In the first watercolor page, do you find that you sketch the flowers first, then paint, or the the other way around?

What a delicious use of color. You have a knack for choosing shades that work so well together.

Brilliant and gorgeous colors and what fun to get to hang them in the SUN to dry too!

Your drawing and painting is wonderful...what very special journals you are creating dear Steph!

I've been offline because of all the storms in my area. When I saw these beautiful colors, I immediately thought they looked like paper towels drying in the sun. Wow, you had an awesome art day. First the watercolors, then the drawing and coloring, then the collaged pages. They are all beautiful. You make such amazing art. I'm totally impressed!

The papered drying in the sun look like flowers in a garden .... And I love the peaks into your sketchbook! Beautiful work!
