Hi! I’m Carolyn @carolynj and I’m taking over the Ohh Deer Instagram feed for today. Hope you follow along (-: On a summers day I sometimes sketch outside on our 3rd floor deck. It’s an inspiring space with lots of Aloes, flowers and veggies.

This space is like an extra room and we spend a lot of time out here in the summer months. I live in downtown Toronto, Canada in a renovated Victorian home built in 1892. My studio is actually underneath here and faces a lovely park with dogs and kids and sounds of the city.

This particular day I ended up sketching some Cacti and Aloes which I adore at the moment. They have great shape, colour and texture.

I then went inside to the studio and setup the camera to make a timelapse demo video. I made 3 that day - the succulents, the Snapdragons and a bouquet on blue. I jump back and forth between Gouache and Watercolour depending on my mood, subject matter and inspiration.
