Blooms Day 2 & 3

 I continued the 5 Days of Beautiful Blooms with Karen Abend and Karen Abend and Sarah Simon. For day 2 Sarah presented an image of Cosmos. I did several of them. Again I worked with fountain pens from Zensations with colored ink that bleeds. I was careful to let it bleed in parts but jus outline in others.

The day 3 challenge was a rose. Roses are always a challenge to me but I sketched it carefully, counting the petals as Sarah suggested. (I still got lost in the flower. lol) I used a Uniball vision for the outline and then Derwent Aquatone watercolor sticks for the color. They didn't come out too vibrant on the paper I was using.


  1. Both of these are lovely Joan. Love the variety of colors you captured in the rose. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Thanks, Debbie. I think both of. us are headed for some snow tomorrow. Stay safe and have a great weekend.

  2. Beautiful on both flowers. Hope you don’t/didn’t get too bad a storm. Our son in Kentucky had it bad but only for one day.
