The Craft Barn 2012 Calendar Challenge - Week #2





This weeks challenge over at The Craft Barn is to use any type of ink, paint, spray or not, colouring pencils or even papers on your calendars, as long as it's bright.  Continuing with my easel calendars I have one that has a beautiful bulrush and sunset scene and I wanted to reflect the water theme.  My watercolour painting has a dark watery background to highlight the brightness of the dragonflies and reeds and the intensity of the white of the bird.  I used water photo real paper for the background mount of the note pad with the word "notes" and dragonflies stamped in pthalo green.  Each of the calendar pages has a psalm at the bottom for the month.

This week's challenge can be found HERE

You've managed to obtain dark colours in your watercolour, which is difficult, and the derawing is accomplished. Very well done !
