watercolor on moleskine
I thought I would round out the week by posting an Everyday Matters challenge. These are great for my watercolor practice. I’m actually not doing too badly with my watercolor experiments. I’m so proud of myself. At the beginning of the year I swore that no one could ever convince me to try watercolor. Now I’m just naturally attracted to it. It must just be the right time…

It’s been a while since I’ve worked on my Everyday Matters challenges, but on one of our walks I saw an opportunity to do one. I saw this 1954 GMC flatbed truck. I remembered that drawing a truck was on the list and this was a lovely truck to draw. It’s not really very rusty and appears to be in good condition. I’m definitely going back soon to do a more detail drawing and then try applying color.
It was so nice to have a chance to recharge a little. My husband had himself a little “staycation” and we hung out and had fun around town. What he liked best was sitting in the sun and taking walks around town with me. He claimed he was practicing for his retirement. It’s nice that he knows how to relax because I can get pretty wound up about things sometimes.
pen and colored pencils
It’s been a while since I’ve done an Everyday Matters Challenge. To be honest, I didn’t do these specifically for the challenge. I was drawing cat cards for various swaps I had signed up for. So imagine my surprise when I went to check what the next EDM challenge would be. When I saw “draw a cat” on the list I just started laughing out loud. I had cats on the brain and I just couldn’t get away from them!
These are a combination of sketching some neighbor cats from life and some other sketches I had in my sketchbook
Here’s another one:
