109-Abstract ink blot sketch

Leah's post yesterday brought back old memories(college days) of playing with ink blots and I enjoyed doing today's art. I dropped green and brown ink on a sheet of paper and blew over them to create abstract shapes,then filled the place around with doodles .
I did the sketch on a white sheet but the digital photo is a cream shade.

I did this watercolor painting of the old barn,today for a challenge at wet canvas..I am picking up my brushes after a long time and I hope to improve my painting skills by participating in WDEs at the wet canvas forum.I realized while doing this painting how you lose the easy strokes in painting when you have a break in doing art on paper.
