Paint with Me - Umbrellas

Umbrellas were way harder to draw than I expected; and, as you can see, I still don't completely have them figured out. But it was fun to to be colorful; and I got inspiration from Feather's swirlies as well.
The sun is strong and bright in our part of the world today....
How about yours?

  1. Hi! Have left a little award for you over at my place The Johnson Diaries
    Hope you like that sort of thing!
    Love your blog - always great posts! Have a lovely day!

  2. Okay, I'm not sure if this was your intended message, but what I got is that everyone is gray and gloomy, hunched under their umbrellas, but the girl is noticing the beauty around her - smelling the rain! Love it!

  3. I love that! I really like the story you're telling on the one umbrella.

  4. Hi Steph, me again!

    Stopped by earlier with a little award but, on reflection, not sure if yours is an award-free blog so my apologies in advance if that should be the case!

    In any event, love yr site - that's why I'm a follower!

    Have a great day,


  5. Love your umbrellas, so if you found them hard to draw you ended up doing a great job. I like the colorful umbrella in the midst of the grey ones. It turned out wonderful!

  6. your colored umbrella was such a pleasant surprise amid the black and white sketches! i love the designs you added, and the way the girl is peeking out from underneath it! lovely!

  7. What a cool idea! Wouldn't it be great to be able to color them all with bright designs and have a bird's eye view like that?!

  8. That's just a wonderful painting. A little touch of colors is beautiful to bring out the smile on that girl face..

    In my part of the world, rain, gloomy, cold and windy :-(

  9. Paint with me looks like fun. I think you did a great job of the umbrellas!

  10. I love your umbrella sketch...good job on your umbrellas:-)

    BTW thank you for the visit and comments about my "L" posting. I am going to try and find something interesting for this week's "M"...Peace


Thank you for your comments. They help me feel that I am some how connected out here in Blogland and not just writing to the air.
