So I had never actually seen a paddle cactus in real life but over Christmas I noticed them in Austin like crazy (because they’re so trendy right now?? Lol) and oh my goodness, they can be huge!! I was so shocked! In other news, I haven’t set aside time to paint in ages so I think I’ll need to add it to my to do list! Any ideas of cute things I should attempt painting?!!? (I’m still learning 😉). . . . . . . . #localpaperco #yql #yyc #lethbridgecalligrapher #christmascactus #watercolor #painting #tropical #wedding #watercolorcactus #custom #handmade #calligrabasics #theletterlovelies #ets#ets#etsycanada #etsy #craftsposure #etsysellers #etsyca #etsylent #etsymagazine #create #makersgonnamake #madeincanada #albertahandmade #flashesofdelight #pursuepretty

A print of my Rainbow Cactus painting from my last video, keeping watch over some cactus babies in my studio. Thanks for all your lovely comments and questions about my video. I used a variety of artist quality watercolors on heavyweight 100% cotton watercolor paper. 🖌️🌵

A little bit more digital watercolor ☺️ I can tell I need to make some actual painting time, though, because going from staring at a screen all day at work to staring at a screen at night when I’m being creative is just no good! It’s all about balance, right? • • • • • • #floralwatercolor #wat#watercoloral #watercolor #cactus #watercolorcactus #diywedding #diybride #weddinginvitations #diyinvitations #clipart #weddingclipart #etsy #etsyseller #calligraphy #digitalwatercolor #watercolour #ipa#ipadpro #ipad #ipadproart #adobesketch

Уже вторую неделю от многих слышу о глобальном похолодании в конце месяца до -20😱❄️Но каждый раз смотрю прогноз и не вижу в нём больше -10😆🤪 И скажу вам честно, морозу больше буду рада😉 Зашли с Ванькой сегодня домой как две свинки, терпеть не могу нынешнюю сырую погоду🤢 А первая иллюстрация в #wtj посвящается всем мерзнущим❄️ 🧣#прогнозыврут

I've been playing around with mock ups a bit again. This is to announce that I've opened a Society6 shop. So far I only have one piece uploaded - these little succulents that I've been working on. I'm calling it Succulent Sampler 01. I'm leaving myself room to paint more succulents, lol.⠀ ⠀ I'm working on formatting this collection to fit most of the Society6 products bur for now you can buy art prints. You can find a link to my shop in my profile. If you like the work it would be a help if you could give my prints a like on Society6.⠀ ⠀ Are there any products that you would particularly like me tow work on first?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #society6 #society6shop #artprintsforsale #modernlivingroomi #modernlivingstyle #watercolorpainting #watercolorsucculents #watercolorcactus #botanicalillustration #vangoghwatercolor #zebraplant #echeveria #beavertailcactus #bluechalksticks #suc#succulent> #succulent #succulove #cactus #cacti #succulentsofinstagram #succulentgarden #succulenthoarder #succulentaddict #mockupdesign #interiorstyle #pursuepretty #itsamber #illustratorincharlotte #charlotteartist #amberlynnbenton

Here‘s my very first painting with watercolors. I love the geometric style and I thought it‘s a good option to get a feeling for the colors. #firsttry #watercolor #watercolorpainting #geometric #geometricpainting #coloring #cactus #geometricwatercolor #beaunicorn #watercolorart #watercolorcactus #aquarelle

Illustration is a funny thing. The works is turning white outside but my head is still in the desert! This little guy is called a Blue Chalk Stick - senicio serpens. It originates in West Africa and can survive long periods of drought. I've read it is dormant in summer and grows in winter. I love how it mounds and spreads and love the cool blue color in the pictures I've seen. I may want to give this one a try in my garden this year. Anyone in in the Charlotte region tried this one?⠀ ⠀ As for my illustration I'm out of ultra marine blue so this blue color was a bit tricky. I used a tiny bit of gouache and also relied quite a bit on my colored pencils. When I first did this one I felt I had overdone the colored pencil but now I'm not so sure. I think I kind of like it!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #watercolorpainting #watercoloring #watercolorcoloredpencils #artinprogress #watercolorcactus #watercolorsucculents #botanicalillustration #botanicalsketch #vangoghwatercolor #gouache #bluechalksticks #senicioserpens #spo#spoonflowered #spoonflower #succulents #succulentsofinstagram #succulentsfordays #succulentgarden #cactigarden #flowersofinstagram #petitejoys #calledtobecreative #madetocreate #carveouttimeforart #wearethemakers #worksonpaper #itsamber #illustratorincharlotte #charlotteartist #amberlynnbenton

It was time to clean up my studio and I came across a few original pieces that need a new home. I am planning on an instagram sale for next Monday. If you have been thinking of purchasing one of my original watercolors you can check my stories next Monday for more details (free shipping!!).

Here is my beavertail cactus. I just love mixing contrasting and complementary colors in watercolor just when the wash is almost dry. Here I used the pencil only to define the joints of the stem. ⠀ ⠀ Honestly I know so very little about these plants - it's fun to learn their names and just a bit of the botany as I am painting. That's something new that I have learned this week - the large sections of succulents and cacti (cacti are succulents) are actually stems!⠀ ⠀ I also used the pencils to give a bit of definition to the flowers. This work is so much more refreshing than sitting at my computer. I think it is time to dust off all of my colored pencils and get them all sharpened and sorted. They have been ignored for far too long!⠀ ⠀ Also thanks to all of you for your likes and many comments and welcome to my new followers. I am touched that you enjoy my work.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #watercolorpainting #watercoloring #artinprogress #watercolorcactus #watercolorsucculents #botanicalillustration #botanicalsketch #vangoghwatercolor #beavertailcactus #spo#spoonflowera> #spoonflower #succulents #cacti #cactilover #cactiofinstagram #succulentsfordays #succulentsofinstagram #succulentgarden #cactigarden #flowersofinstagram #petitejoys #calledtobecreative #madetocreate #carveoutimeforart #wearethemakers #worksonpaper #itsamber #illustratorincharlotte #charlotteartist #amberlynnbenton

Here is the first of today's watercolors all cleaned up and ready to work with. I have to say that @catcoq has the best tutorial on cleaning up watercolor sketches that I have ever watched. Check her out on @skillshare! Hers is such a quick and easy workflow - and per her advice I scanned these in at a crazy high resolution so I can do anything I want with them. ⠀ ⠀ Lots more cleanup work to do and I'll probably need some more succulent and cacti paintings for this project, too. It's nice to post something that looks finished but for now back to work!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #watercolorpainting #watercolorillustration #watercolorsuccultents #watercolorcactus #botanicalillustration #vangoghwatercolor #zebraplant #spo#spoonflowered #spoonflower #suc#succulents #succulent #succulentlove #succulove #succulentsfordays #succulentsofinstagram #succulentgarden #succulenthoarder #succulentaddict #pursuepretty #abmlifeiscoloful #abmlifeisbeautiful #thehappynow #darlingweekend #livethelittlethings #makersgonnamake #availableforlicensing #availableforcommission #itsamber #illustratorincharlotte #charlotteartist

A little cacti piece I've been working on in my spare time this week inspired by @tulippoplarco #communityovercompetition monthly prompts. January is cacti! I mixed gouache and watercolor with pen for a more opaque, illustrative style and it was a nice change! I used a photo from @jt_design for a reference-- my go to page when I need inspiration! #tpc2018challenge #watercolorexplorers #cacti #cactusillustrationmagazine #watercolorpainting #watercolorart #watercolorcacti #watercolorcactus #thatsdarling #creativityfound #creativehappylife #botanicalpainting #artistsofinstagram #artistsoninstagram #cactipainting #cactuspainting #plantlife #plantsofinstagram #holbein

I'm in the middle of a succulent project. I have a bit of surprise in store for these watercolor elements - can't wait to show you! I broke out my Prismacolors to give the zebra plant just a tiny bit of definition. I think it worked well so I'll be touching up the others, too.

Finally did some painting for myself today! This was my warm-up piece before diving head first into commissions for the rest of the day. Also, I wanted to give you guys a little behind-the-scenes view of my work station! Swipe to see a little bit of the insane mess at my “work station” aka my lap and ottoman 😂 Yes, this is how I work every single day—paint, paper, pens, and supplies literally covering the ottoman and couch.
