A Watercolorist's Take on Subway Signage

I love subway signage and I wanted to try it, but on my own terms-- with watercolor. I had one sheet of watercolor paper left in a book and this is something I've wanted to try for some time now. So I figured why the heck not?! It was pretty fun and easy. There was something very liberating about smearing black paint all over the paper.


I think the reason I like subway signage so much is because I love words. It's not the typical message on subway signage but I couldn't resist. These are some of my all time favorite words. I would venture to guess that this is the most beloved E.E. Cummings poem ever. It is not the whole poem, obviously, but I couldn't fit many more words...I hope I spelled everything right!

Next time I'd maybe like to try it with some color behind the letters...?

Modern Floral Watercolor 5

I got a new handmade watercolor pallet from Designs by Rachel Beth on Etsy and I couldn't wait to try it. I'm pretty excited about how this one turned out-- especially the yellow rose shape. That one didn't turn out so great the last time I tried it. I think using a smaller brush helped.

Doodles from my Journal

I've been doodling for a couple of days now and I've really enjoyed it. It sure helps pass the time at work and I like to see what I come up with. Here are a few pictures from my art journal. They will all eventually be painted.
