Happy Quote Monday, friends!

Although I have been enjoying the beautiful sunny mild weather we’ve been having here in Indianapolis, I do really enjoy a good thunderstorm!

This is a semi redo of a Quote Monday I wasn’t satisfied with (click here). I wanted to give a multilayered effected to a rainy scene in watercolor. Also, I needed a break from my illustrative/comic routine and went REALLY loose with this week. I only used 2 flat brushes and didn’t have a pencil sketch. I wanted to play with the background and have fun! It’s always good to do that once and a while. I find it really refreshes my motivation!

ALSO! No Quote Monday next week! I will be making my annual trek to New Mexico, visiting my mother and wandering the desert. I’ll have a sketchbook and will be focusing on black and white photography (my first true love).
