EDiM 5-6: Draw A Scented Product (one to counteract another) and a Pine Tree

Draw a Pine Tree  and a Scented Product (perfume and cat litter)

Draw a Pine Tree and a Scented Product (perfume and cat litter), ink & watercolor 8×11″

I had fun with May 6: “Draw a Scented Product.” I sketched two scented “products” — one man-made and one cat-made. The man-made is a lovely (and expensive) room perfume (Vanilla, Bourbon and Mandarin) that I fell in love with at my dentist’s office and unlike most scented products doesn’t give me a headache. It nicely counteracts the scented product my cats produce on a  regular basis.

“Draw a pine tree” was the cue for May 5. Easy…found one in my neighborhood bigger than a house and sketched it and painted it sitting in my car on a cold, foggy, windy day.

I’m experimenting with an inexpensive ($13.00) Winsor Newton Cotman watercolor palette. I like the format, size and light weight very much and the way the paint easily re-wets. Although the colors aren’t as intense as their artist’s grade paints they’re all permanent/lightfast. But that might be fine for sketching since it might help me keep the sketches simpler and save fancy washes for real watercolor paper.

    Love your sketches Jana! Especially the details like little sprinklings of litter outside the box. I know just how that goes with 3 cats of my own.

      Thanks Judy! Drawing details are such fun, even if they’re that nasty, ubiquitous cat litter. I finally found a brand that doesn’t travel too much. Jana

  2. I’m enjoying you daily drawings/paintings as an art teacher and a learning water-colorist. I like the idea of a small portable watercolor pallet that can be carried around for sketching on location. Keep up the good work!
