wow... Miss Doodle these lively colors especially the red in your pants and the rose on your hair reminded me of these lines from a poem by Robert Burns:

O my Luve's like a red, red rose
That's newly sprung in June;
O my Luve's like the melodie
That's sweetly played in tune.

These are fantastic! I love the intensity of the colors and the composition of the page.

Miss Doodle, you do find the most wonderful flowers and your secretary is incredible with the pen and brush!

What a great team the two of you are.

Thanks so much!

Human Being, Tashakor:) I love these lines, and I will go and instruct myself and learn a bit more about Robert Burns! Lovely!

Cestandrea said...

Kim, yes these colours are a lot more intense, less delicate than the watercolours. These are Windsor and Newton drawing inks, in little pots with cute little pictures on them:) But still, I haven't found the bright red, with which I painted Miss Doodle's pants, it is my old red ink (remember the watercolour I did once?)
Like Indiana Jones, I'm on a quest: for the old red mighty red ink.

Lovely colors those inks. Bright and colorful. Do you mix the ink with water and paint with a brush?
There must be a red ink somewhere in this world to match up with your old Red Ink Miss doodles Secretary.
Get that Whip crackin`:)

Cestandrea said...

Get that whip crackig! :) Only you can say such things:) LOL.
Perhaps you were a cowgirl in a former life?:)
Love this.
The colours, these are not diluted, perhaps the green I don't remember, I'll try it in another painting!

Indiana Jones is famous for his whip you know..LOL

Cestandrea said...

Oh LOL, Chris, the whip, Indiana Jones, I forgot that he was a whip specialist:) I thought you just said that like that, (cause those flowers may look like a whip)...

Cris in Oregon said...

Well now that you mention it. . .
LOL

Oh as everyone has commented, lovely colors. You know I do not have any inks. Now, I'm wanting some. Miss doodle thanks for sharing your wonderful eye and hand.

Your flower garden is bright and lively...I do love all these colors and shapes... And you do not even have to be bothered with watering them. Will look lovely on cloth.

Lynn, thanks and yes, I think this is a very "textile" design, I'll keep it in store in my textile corner:)
