I was recently inspired to create some watercolor + Sharpie pen bookmarks. I focused on organic shapes and swirls over a pastel, painted background. I was so happy to find English watercolor artist named Helen Wells , who lives in the town of Hastings. (For all you who love Foyle's War -- that's where Inspector Foyle lived and worked!) Please check out her lovely and color-filled work on her website . This was a great trial run for a project I'll share with some school children in the near future.
