Like the title says - I'm supposed to be a writer, but I fangirl an awful lot. Plays a fairy on the internet.

This is for the ‘Turn the Christmas music on’ prompt for #advent_challenge #advent_challenge2019

This idea hit me all at once as I woke up from a nap… sugar plum fairies, perhaps?

Another #letsmakeart snowflake tutorial. I made two… part of me wants to make a bazillion… part of me never wants to roll a wad of masking fluid off a piece of paper ever again. #letsgomakeart #watercolor

It’s true. Animals look crazy till you finish the eyes. I can’t believe I drew and painted this all my own self. I owe a lot to #letsmakeart and for challenges on Instagram that push me to draw and paint beyond what I’m comfortable with.

This is prompt ‘write a letter to Santa’ for #advent_challenge #advent_challenge2019

Pretty sure an owl would carry a letter to Santa.

I’m still not comfortable with florals and wreaths. But I did enjoy adding the bronze ink that came with my subscription to #letsmakeart this month. I hope you can see it in the photo. This is one of their tutorials. #letsgomakeart #watercolor

I’ve had such a creative weekend. I think this will be the last I’ll paint. I wanted to do these for my cubicle at work. This was a simple landscape tutorial from @makoccinos on Youtube. Super cute. #watercolor #makoccinos

I need to keep finding art challenges on Instagram because they push me to create and to draw. This is a 100% Bettieleetwo production. 😀 The vast majority of what I post are tutorials and I wanna do more of my own.

This challenge only requires an illustration / art piece every 4 days or so. This prompt is ‘decorating a house’… I decided my house was a forest.

Outline by @art_by_d_till splatter and mess by me. I didn’t do a very good job of defining the body but I had fun with some oranges and reds. #watercolor #artbydtill

Here is the 5th challenge for @dearannart ’s book coming out Dec 3 called 15 Minute Watercolor Masterpieces. I was dragging my feet because this didn’t really suit my usual color pallet but as always, I found getting out of my box fun and instructional. And I’m really happy with how it turned out.

So don’t say I only post my successes. What a mess. I still have a lot to learn. Sorry, Brer Bear. The bear is from #watercolorwithme #intheforest The rest is my fault. #watercolor

This is a #letsmakeart tutorial for kids. And I struggled. I’m glad I didn’t quit half-way. I may also have to admit the Kuretake set I spent so much money on for doesn’t blend well and that is disappointing.

For as much as I love wet-on-wet I feel I try to be too precisely free…. if that makes sense. I wanted to go outside the box a little and use some metallics and just let loose. I posted a few closeups. I’m surprised how well the camera picked up the gold!

A German Shepherd galaxy. #letsmakeart tutorial. This was a #letsmakeartmatter project but after I did the postcard I wanted to do one for my mini #watercolor sketchbook. Kind of a sneak peak for the galaxy wolf which is the next project.
