watercolours x poetry number two, inspired during my summer in muskoka, ontario.
this is the first in a series I am working on where I make my two favourite mediums collide – poetry and watercolours. I’m still learning and working, so let me know what you think!

watercolours and ink from my summer in muskoka, ontario, 2017.
honestly, i’m over the moon with this 4×6 foot painting. i did it in an all-nighter with a palate knife and some great music. the colours and the movement are wonderful to me, and while i know there is most definitely room for improvement, i would love to keep workin on a large scale such as this one. more big canvases for me please!
do you prefer to work on a large or small scale? let me know!
abstract and watercolours are both a bit of a struggle for me, but practice makes perfect and i’ve already noticed improvement in my work! this watercolour is done on a piece of large sketchbook paper, and i took my time with this one which is extra rewarding!
sometimes i get tired of my sketchbook so i go over it in watercolours! they’re not a medium i’m excellent at, but it’s a fun way to refresh my brain and sketchbook at the same time! plus, getting to play around with watercolours is quite relaxing, so i think i’m going to do it more often.
since moving my art space to the living room where i have more area and better lighting i’m getting back into acrylic painting! here are some warm-up paintings i’ve done recently while playing with colours.
