Index-Card-a-Day Week 8; World Watercolor Month Week 4

Standard

I’m participating in the Index-Card-a-Day challenge, and World Watercolor Month. I completed six cards this week.

The ICAD day 47 prompt was pencil:

Day 48 I went off-prompt. Of course, you know, I’d have to fit in a unicorn at some point during the challenge.

The prompt for day 49 was orchard. For day 19 of World Watercolor Month it was favorite scent. A blooming cherry tree fits both. I copied this tree from Anna Koliadych’s book, 15-Minute Watercolor Masterpieces. This card got the most likes this week on my Instagram page.

Day 50 I went off-prompt. I’m working on a book of poems for children, which I plan to illustrate myself. The illustrations will be black-and-white line drawings, but this is World Watercolor Month, so I painted this one accordingly. The poem is about a boy learning to write a thank you note for a sweater knitted by his grandmother.

Day 51’s prompt of blue (my favorite color) reminded me how much I loved “sky blue” popsicles from the Good Humor man when I was a child.

Day 52 I also went off-prompt. This is an illustration for a poem about a boy who is disappointed with his new haircut. I think this is my favorite card of the week.
