My brother is visiting... ;)
He reads and draws and tells stories with my son and overall became his friend in many adventures :) They are doing so well together that I had a chance to draw!

Hydrangea that I was getting ready to throw away and moved in the corner is back to life - within 2 weeks - lots of new leaves and a promise - little flowerheads sticking our now ;)
p.s. as you can see, monsteras are ever present ;)
p.p.s. I was playing with the watercolor pens this time - it's a very easy to use tool - quick to start and finish the process - which I appreciate very much since I often have only a few minutes. But mixing colors is still something I need to work on - right now I was getting some colors by touching the point of one pen with another - which works great but then you need to clean both pens and it's not as easy as with the normal brush ;)

This Saturday we went for a very nice little hike in villa montalvo - it's our first time. The park is pretty "domesticated", a little more people than I'd like - for early morning hike but overall - very nice place - and pretty close!
Too bad I did not have time to sketch water strider with amazing shadows on the bottom of the pool! Well, this calls for another visit then ;)
And I'd love to draw buildings at that place too!

I am a "list" person - I have many lists. For example, I keep a list of places/things/events I want to draw. It's long and the...
