World Watercolor Month = Bible Journaling Style - episode 7
Topic: Painting

I have so much enjoyed the challenge of doing watercolor painting every day this month. I did work ahead so I could fit it all in and still leae this weekend free for another project.

So here are the final 6 paintings.

Day 26 - Prompt YELLOW

I liked the idea of a sunflower to go with this verse because they lift their faces and track the sun across the sky. I watched a painting video on YouTube one day and then painted this from memory the next.

Day 27 - Prompt HOME

These birdhouses are styled after wonky houses developed by Joanne Fink.


Day 28 - Prompt CURIOUS

I havehad this painting in mind to do for a long time but it was really hard to find a reference photo that would match my vision. I really wanted the tippy-toes and the pose facing away. I finally found a vintage photo that was a good model, even tho it was black-and-white.

I used watercolor pencils for this. Haven't used them for a LONG time and had to make myself a little color chart for reference to show what they looked like when wetted.


Day 29 - Prompt ENDURING

I think raccoons are adorable! I wanted to challenge myself to do something with fur. I used the watercolor pencils again.

I did a lot of color blending before applying water brush to blend. I added shading and detailing with black ink and then finished with a white gel pen for highlights.


Day 30 - Prompt COMPASSION

Another personal challenge - paint realistic water. I decided to go entirely monochromatic with this so that the shading rather than color was the defining element. I used only water and Payne's Gray paint.

I worked from a painting I found on Pinterest. I did a little detail work with white gel pen.


Day 31 - Prompt FLOURISH

No flourishes on this! But the word is in the verse which also refers to palm trees.

I used some new brush watercolor markers to stamp two different palm branches in various greens. I added a second green to each branch with watercolor pencil before blending with a water brush.

I made marks with a waterolor pencil in the background and blended them out with water. Then I wetted the whole background and dried with a heat tool. I then outlined every branch with fine black marker.

I used the watercolor brush markers to letter the verse on vellum and mounted that over the illustration.


And there you have it - 31 greeting cards using watercolor paint, watercolor pencils and/or watercolor brush markers. All contain scriptures and were triggered by the prompts provided by Sandy Allnock for World Watercolor Month 2018.
