Swan’s Reflection

Hi Friends.  I hope your 2018 has started off with peace, calm, and warmth! My creative brain has been on overload lately – almost like artist ADHD.  I want to do so many things and there is so much to learn, but I found that I am too scattered at the moment; I have so many ideas that it is difficult to create anything of quality.  I’m attending a weekly art class where I am working on larger paintings, I’ve enrolled in some online courses (intermediate watercolor and improving drawing skills), I’ve checked out tons of books from the library, and of course there is a never-ending source of information on YouTube.  I guess what I need is some FOCUS.

I thought a good idea is to go back at my roots of following along with some Doodlewash prompts because those are fun little paintings that I can create in an evening.  Today’s prompt is Reflection, so here is a graceful swan I observed while on one of my summertime walks last year.


Maybe I need to make a loose art schedule for myself and focus on drawing for so many hours per week, Doodlewashes, etc.   Any ideas are welcome!

  1. A lovely swan painting, Carol! ❤️ I have many ideas swirling around in my head for the new year of creating too. It helps me to write them down in a journal and then just begin on what sound like fun! 🎨👍

  2. I love the reflection and the atmosphere you’ve created.
    My head is also full of too much “stuff” sometimes I doodle or scribble a page of ideas in a sketckbook just to jot them down. When I have a day that I don’t know what to draw I can flick through my book and remind myself of the ideas I didn’t get chance to work on. X
