In The Creative Zone

creative zone, cobalt teal,

Sunday rolls by, with Monday’s class agendas on my mind….I need to get in the creative zone!  Perhaps, with some experimentation  inspiration and Ideas will arise.

Square Format Teal


Cobalt Teal Blue pg50   paired with Indigo  Daniel Smith watercolours makes a great duet I think.

Recap of Sunday Creative Art Experiments


I do like the Idea of using a skewer to apply the indigo vertically for the fir trees, so I may use that.   I also like the Idea of using Indigo and Cobalt Teal blue together.

Changing formats is a good Idea I will use.  Perhaps we will try both the square and the long vertical formats as a change up.

The act of creation, in any media is a fascinating and magical process. I simply love to create. Expressing in color, line, tone, texture - as if, they were words upon a page. Creating a uniquely me, interpretation. Enjoy More of my "one-of-a-kind" expressive art at and,

  1. WOW, these are so incredible! I think my favorites. They should be in a gallery, and I’m serious about that. BTW blue and it’s different variations is my favorite colors.

  2. Oh Deb! You make it look so easy! I love love love these colors! I am in such awe of your work. I’m sorry I just keep gushing, but you seriously blow me away every time! And before I ever tried it – I would have thought these looked so simple and easy, but I know better know. Simple and abstract are not easy. Is it effortless to you? Your work has such FEELING! Awh! I’m blown away again. 🙂

    1. good morning Jodi 🙂 easy… hmm, Sure! LOL sometimes, when I’m on a roll, in the zone. Thank you, you’re wonderfully KIND. minimalist is more natural to me, than trying to do 10,000 strokes – yes, that is TOO Hard! 🙂
