Painting with Watercolors

I am in love with this pad of watercolor paper by eeboo. The pages are 6-1/2 by 9-1/2” of Italian cold press paper and features the whimsical artwork of Monika Forsberg. 

On a recent trip to San Francisco, I made a memory page of my experiences.

I’ve been trying to draw and paint at least once a week. My collection of houses.

These are the kinds of watercolor paints that I prefer to paint with when I am in town on plastic palettes

I love drawing imaginary flowers

And houses

And tools of my trade

And this one for Mother’s Day. A self portrait with my favorite dog Bandit sitting in my garden. Drawing and painting is so relaxing and it feeds my soul. 


  1. Fun and inspiring post. Love the houses on the hills with orange tulips and a great self portrait.

  2. Jamie, I love your watercolour pictures!I am experimenting with free motion stitched images with Inktense pencils acting like watercolour and it's a lovely effect.Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. Wonderful paintings and I do love using watercolors, though I have been dabbling in acrylics again, mostly folk art. I find painting to be relaxing and a nice way to express myself.


  4. So much fun and color! I always love learning what tools other artists like to use. Thank you.
