Links to Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways is published on Monday and Saturday.

Note: Real life has been intruding on my time more and more lately, lol.  I've decided that I need to spend a bit less time online, so I'm only going to post my resource link list on Monday and Saturday.  I'm sorry for any inconvenience this causes.

Mushrooms by Moonlight #Watercolor #WorldWatercolorGroup @Hahnemühle_USA

I painted this for the 'Mushrooms' challenge at Doodlewash & the World Watercolor Group yesterday.

For some reason, my scanner just won't pick up all the colors on some paintings, and this was one of them, so I had to take a photograph - not my forte.  It shows up a little brighter in places than the actual painting, but not by much.

Friday Fun & Easy Landscape Challenge- Learn to Draw the Agave Bloom #Fun&EasyLandscape Step-Out @ZebraPen #DrawingTutorial #Step-by-Step @Hahnemühle_USA

For Valentine's Day, my hubby gave me a nasty cold, lol.  I was tempted to skip the challenge this week, but we can't have that can we?  A while back, when sharing the way I'm using Alice Hendon's Tangle Starts planner, I mentioned that I was looking at plants for inspiration - cacti particular.

Wonderful plants are the cacti! I found one that is so-so simple to do, yet creates such a cool look, and I realized it was perfect for today's post.  So simple that even sick, I could whip it out. And it only took me 5 times longer than it should, lol.

So I'm hoping it's easy enough for just about everyone.

The Friday Fun & Easy Landscape Challenge 2/16-2/22: Draw a landscape using the Agave Bloom Step-out.  Extra calorie-free brownie points for adding some kind of cactus from your own imagination.
