Alisa Burke Inspired

http://alisaburke.blogspot.com/2010/02/its-all-about-journey.html

I was visiting Pam Garrisons blog Saturday morning, she said to go check out this video at
Alisa Burkes Blog
...so away I went. I had a few minutes before taking a day trip up to the mountains into the fresh sunny air. So I quickly watched the video.
Out the door I went, with my pens and pad in hand
I opened my watercolor journal
I need to give it a try. I didn't watch the video THAT carefully, so I thought, ok, I'll just use it for the inspiration that it was...and I started...
Oh what fun, and something I could do while riding in the car. I had my watercolors with me too.
So here is what I came up with...
I tried the top one on dried watercolor
The one above was a very light wash of watercolor, then I went in when I was finished inking
and added more color
The one above, I doodled first then went in with washes of watercolor
This is the beginning of an other one.
Since I was doodling in the car, on bumpy back roads,
I did a rough draft in pencil.
Then when we stopped for lunch I doodld with permanent markers.
On the way home I played with the watercolors.

I must go see the video. Who ever said you can't do two things at once. I hope you were not the driver. Whoo hoo! Love what you created.

I have to tell you I spent an hour looking at all her videos. What a free spirit. You asked what I carve. When I was in grad classes at the U of Minnesota, I was carving in stone, wood and copper. Have had to stop for awhile as I screwed up my shoulder carving in a maple burl... I really move about in my arts. A little bit of this and a lot of that lately. I love doing copper plate prints but no longer have access to a press. Thanks for asking.

Gorgeous! If only I were so talented with pen and ink and watercolors! Maybe I'll give it a try one of these days.
