Another Watercolor Session with the Nieces

Camila can't believe how easily her waterbrush picks up the pigment from the Daniel Smith watercolor stick.
Sketching with the Niji waterbrush.
Mom standing by with the watercolor stick ready to support Camila's painting exploration.
Marissa trying to join in the coloring fun. Adult supervision is particularly important when allowing children to explore their creativity with artist grade art materials.
Coloring with Neocolor II watercolor crayons and Faber Castell Albrecht Durer watercolor pencils on the first page of sample ink doodles in the Exacompta Sketch Book.
Adding some color detail with a Caran D'Ache Museum Fixpencil.
Picking up color straight from the watercolor stick.
Painting with the Niji waterbrush on a Handbook watercolor journal.
Playing with some loose painterly strokes as practice for my upcoming "watercolor painting postcards" demo for the media and tourism representatives at the von Liebig Art Center early next month.
The idea for this watercolor doodle is that an squid-like monster is coming through a inter-dimensional portal (Stargate style).
Combining some painting and loose sketching to achieve different textures with the watercolor sticks. All this fairly abstract watercolor playtime inspired my niece to experiment and create her own piece with the watercolors sticks.
Nicole's abstract creation of a "Multicolored Heart".
