*** Simplest/ Smallest/ Cheapest things are often the best- Post No 2210

I  have fun with watercolours just now ....


8,5 x 6 inches (21 x 15 cm) 

The objects here were painted  with watercolours and outlines were drawn with a fineliner after the painting was dry. The advantage of doing so is that  just  cheap  (non permanent / not waterproof ) office-markers do an excellent job for this purpose since no moisture is added afterwards.

I think  the smallest or simplest things can warm the heart -
what do you think?


The words were added digital....

meant for our new November theme 
"101 Ways To Keep Warm" over at 


hosted by Pearshapedcrafting CHRIS.

♥♥♥
Happy start of the weekend for you.
Die Objekte hier wurden mit Aquarell gemalt und  Umrisse wurden mit einem Fineliner gezeichnet, nachdem das Bild trocken war. Der Vorteil dabei ist, dass gerade billige (nicht permanente / nicht wasserfeste) Office-Marker dafür eine ausgezeichnete Arbeit leisten, da danach keine Feuchtigkeit hinzugefügt wird.
Für ART JOURNAL JOURNEY wo Chris derzeit das November-Thema
 "101 Arten sich warm zu halten" betreut, hab ich noch digital einen Text hinzugefügt.
Einen guten Start ins Wochenende wünsche ich !

  2. So delightful Susi - I love your cheerful watercolour art.
    A very good point too about the less expensive markers which can be used once there is no more water... thank you :D) xx

  11. These smallest things are big in effect. They certainly warm my heart and I love the cup, flowers, and pot. Of course, the watercolors you used for a background are beautiful, too. This is an adorable addition to AJJ.

  18. Your painting really warms my heart, Susi. It has a wonderful simplicity of colour and design but I know that it is anything but simple to create, that takes real skill.

  21. Ja, die kleinsten und einfachsten Dinge wärmen das Herz - stimmt! Dein feines Aquarell gefällt mir sehr, die Linien mit dem Fineliner und der schöne gerade Rand. Hast du ihn vor dem Malen abgeklebt?

  28. Was Du da immer auf die Schnelle zauberst ist echt zauberhaft. Einfach mal schnell ganz federleicht ein paar Farben hin getupft, ein bißchen outlining und voila ... ein entzückendes Bild!!!!
