Oh my! exotic what??? My brother's suggestion was an exotic car. In an inch? Don't think so. Then I risked googling the word - considering all the things that could be exotic it was a risk. But there I saw some gorgeous flowers, animals, and locations. One caught my eye and made me think it could be within my ability.
On a piece of paper about 1.5 inches big I painted the background with watercolor. Then after it dried I pulled out my gel pens and drew in the sunset - way too bold. So I took my finger and smeared it around - perfect for what I wanted. I then did the same with the reflection on the water. Last I drew in the island and palms. You can't see it, but I am sitting right there on that beach and my little beach house is just behind those trees. Ahh . . . don't I wish.
When everything was good and dry, I take my inchie frame and move it around til I have the space that I like the best.
Thank you for visiting on my little island. Pull up a beach chair, grab something cold and stay awhile. You may not want to leave!
