A blog to celebrate the little things in life that might get missed along the way. Taking the time to slow down, look, and really see. Nurturing a mindfulness through photography, art, crafts, and writing that reminds us there is beauty in every day.
This little elephant was my first time playing with a Speedball Elegant Writer Pen to do my line drawing for a watercolor painting. The pen bleeds and shifts colors nicely. It's so easy to use. I'll definitely get a lot of use out of it.
Below is my first attempt at using pastels. Hopefully, you can tell it's a seascape. 😉 Pastels are difficult for me because I can't quite get the detail I like, and everything looks soft and unfocused. I'm going to need lots of practice.
