Magenta Garden - watercolor & ink leaves by micklyn

Magenta Garden - watercolor & ink leaves by 

I’m really enjoying experimenting with watercolour & acrylic inks, using washes to explore texture & colour. The leaves were hand drawn with an ink pen, a kind of meditative, zentangle / doodle drawing – very relaxing to do.

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.
