•   slatteryjustin Nice. You should look into using Prismacolor markers. They are awesome. @msshort 1d
  •   msshort @slatteryjustin i had no idea they made markers, i was looking at the pencils few days back on your recommendations but here in aus its coming up to back to the new school year and the art store was out - hogh school students have prima pencils on their stationary list! how crazy is that?? i think i'll look online, im pretty selective on the colours i buy and use in markers. how are you? 1d
  •   slatteryjustin I'm good. I just got back from work and I'm at the studio. It sucks that you can't find Prismacolor markers there right now and you have to order online. They are more expensive online. You Need to use them though. They can bring your work to a whole new level, especially the blenders. 1d
  •   msshort @slatteryjustin are the prisma ones anything like copic markers? i was actually rather disappointed with them. whats your day job? 1d
  •   slatteryjustin No, the copic ones are much different. It doesn't matter if you don't like the Prismacolor markers because whatever materials you like to use to produce good work is the most important thing. I just thought you should try them because they can be fun and very 1d
  •   slatteryjustin Versatile. 1d
  •   avidreadertwo Great work as usual, my dear! Any specific reason there is a diamond in the center??? 1d
  •   msshort @avidreadertwo well i came across a nice diamond picture i like, you will see it again shortly too :-) and because we've very recently had a beautiful engagement in the family! my partners brother proposed to his now fiance on new years eve and we are all so happy about it! (better be my turn next!!! lol) 18h

  •   mirasolmosaic Good morning 2d
  •   avidreadertwo I really like your drawings in your little sketchbook! 2d
  •   msshort @avidreadertwo thanks so much gail! its only a lil 14cm x 14cm sketchbook - perfect for throwing it in the handbag and off ya go!! highly recommend it! hope all is well my darling xoxo 1d
  •   avidreadertwo You are such a sweetie! All is well! Excited because I'm taking my first painting class, Intuitive Painting, in person! Not online!! 1d
  •   msshort @avidreadertwo oh nice! intuitive painting? i need a run down on that please - sounds interesting. and youre far braver than myself, im too terrified to take an art class in person, id def love to though! 18h
  •   avidreadertwo Oh Rachael, I was scared too! But I don't know anyone who does art journaling or mixed media except online! I needed to meet others. That didn't happen but it was an interesting class. Intuitive painting is basically not thinking out what you're painting but just to put paint on the paper according to what you're feeling! Weird! I thought a lot of my back pain as I was standing there and just saw red! Red marks, then other colors. It was fine if you just paint the paper black! Intuitive! I'll post one of my paintings! 16h

msshort i didnt post the final product of this tricky lil mandala. ive been sitting outside this afternoon with my first and small attempt at a 'garden' at Lances' place, a pot with 4 different types of succulents in it - i think its adorable and plan to extend it out, more plants are much needed! xoxo

msshort whats better than going into a long weekend where we celebrate Australia Day, sitting by the beach front of the bay you call home and having a sketchbook and pen in hand on a glorious, sunny day? not much to be honest.

msshort i have so many watercolours(cheap, expensive, pans and tubes) but my fave colour is still from a cheap pan set that i got 3 years ago. ive not found a nicer blue since. if you arent able to tell, this is a set of headphones with no one inbetween them - kinda how it is when i see people with headphones/earbuds in, sorta like theyve blanked themselves out from the world. not that there is anything wrong with that.

  •   ethylmethyl Oooooh that's awesome. If I could have drawn that, I'd then AGONIZE over writing something in those banners, because I'd probably screw them all up. Lol! Ps what time is it in aussieland?! It's 12:51 am on 1/18 here, I just got off Saturday night work an hour ago! I never knew the Aussie time difference from me (I'm in eastern time - GMT -5) 1w
  •   msshort @ethylmethyl hey hun! I'm actually too scared to write in it for the same reason! Right now its 5:28pm on Sunday evening here, eastern time here in oz. We are normally almost a day 'in front' of you guys. I wish it was still Saturday night!!! 1w

msshort i learnt this from last night: it is silly to attempt to draw and rule straight lines when youre coming down with a headcold and have a fuzzy brain. cold & flu tablets made think this sketch was a good idea. lesson learnt.
