{my creative space} Watercolour and drawing

Today is day two of quiet and totally inspired creativeness at my kitchen table (which is my current studio space).
I am listening to radio national, and catching up with all the world news and bush telegraph.
But mostly I am drawing. Small and quiet moments of still life. Pieces that are around me evolving from my pen.
I painted the Watercolour paper with marbling ink and sprayed water onto it to make seeped and weeping and splotched and splatter of colour. I cannot barely express to you how this seeping colour makes me feel.
I see rivers and streams and deltas and oceans evolving in blue and red on my paper.

I am drawing what I see in front me. The gathering of vases and cups and bottles that clutter the table top. With blossoms and growing beet root leaves and herbs. And also, I am drawing my crochet stones.
I have not made any new crochet stones for a short while (oh I'm missing that), but it's fun to draw them.

I don't know how to add links from this iPad. Can anyone help me out with this? Lots to learn about how it works best.

I must pack up soon and wash up and wonder about dinner making. But for now I have a new pot of tea brewing and some more drawing.......

More creative spaces are here -

I am also loving crazily the colour and pieces that Alex Falkiner shares on her website, and mostly on her instagram feed (where I discovered her....).!home/mainPage
