Cantalina Whyte

“Paint me!”, she said.

“Paint ME!”, she demanded.

“PAINT ME NOW!!!”, I thought this chick’s intense. Actually, I didn’t, as I never use the word ‘chick’, but the meaning of my thoughts were the same.

“DO IT!” She wasn’t letting me off the hook. Who are you? I asked.

“Cantalina Whyte”, she said, as if I should have known.

Such was her fierce nature, I’ve completely lost track of how many watercolours I’ve done up until now for #WorldWatercolorMonth, I think this may be number 16. Over halfway through the month already. Time is certainly flying, isn’t it? Not like in Cantalina’s portrait, where it is always 4 o’clock.

The View

I’ve just done a pile of washing and mopped the Bathroom floor, and decided I wanted to rest a little by sploshing some watercolour around… handy, considering it’s #WorldWatercolorMonth!

For this painting, my eleventh of eleven, if memory serves me right, is of a simple view out to sea. I found a lighthouse on th’internet and painted it into a scene from my imagination. I quite like how it turned out.  Although I don’t like the wonky photo I’ve taken of it!

Somewhere between Make Believe and Heaven: The Rainbow Maker

Somewhere up above the clouds
Exists and old and crooked house
And within the house there lives a man
Who creates rainbows when he can

He sprinkles magic upon the clouds
From the window in his crooked house
And when the rain begins to fall
From the magic a rainbow forms

A bit of magic does wonders, don’t you think?

Another digital doodle of a magic nature this week!

Bottoms Up!

Partly inspired by a recent post by Cobs, and partly inspired by nature, I have digitally painted a whimsical dormouse scurrying into a hole in a tree. I say ‘painted’, but I merely spread a few dashes of colour here and there to create a tree effect. And a hole effect. And a dormouse effect.

Very rough, and very quick… but that’s dormouses for you. (Apart from the roughness, that is… they are so adorably cute!)

Faecopse

This return to blogging seems to be rather slower than expected, but I keep popping in every now and then! As today is Tuesday, and it is Artsday here on Beyond the Sphere, I thought I would share a quick digital doodle of the magical ‘Faecopse’. Magical? you ask? Why, yes! There’s a magical hidden gateway that is clearly visible through the darkness. And a gateway / pathway / route through any kind of darkness is always welcome, however small or hidden.

Have a fabulous day and I will see you soon.
