I added a wash coat of color and a bit of detail to the ink sketches.
Being a line-work gal, not sure which I like best… You?
Moleskin 8×11 watercolor journal,
watercolor pencils and Pentalic HB woodless pencil,
Platinum Preppy pen, Sheaffer calligraphy pens; inks that behaved:
De Atramentis Document and Super5 inks;
and Greenleaf & Blueberry, Daniel Smith , and Holbein watercolors.
I started a Facebook group page (you must join to view) to allow everyone to share their virtual sketches, and also where we will, from time to time, take virtual sketch walks together. Come join us On Facebook if you are inclined!
If you want to know more about what a virtual sketchwalk is review my first post.
There are a few more notes/pointers on our first walk through Laguna Beach, California.
I also created an accompanying Flickr group!

Love the first one that shows up all the line work.
When I like one that is all linework it is hard to press on. However, my sketchbooks are all about me learning developing whatever my abilities with watercolor — it has only been two years! Sometimes I hate the results, sometimes I love them. I was so-so on this one.
It’s just personal; I’m not a fan of ink and watercolour together. And I do like the detail in your linework. Sandi
Oh gads Sandi, there must be a lot of sketchers whose work you feel so-so about! I’m actually playing with no lines now…
That’s great, because there is some lovely loose work that appears on this blog. Thanks. Sandi.
Hi Katie – I am getting married at the Harold Washington Library and would love it if I could buy one of your sketches to frame for my fiance and I, they are BEAUTIFUL!! Do you sell your art? What is the best way to get in contact with you?
I sent you an email, and can talk to you next week about options. Congrats! What a gorgeous place to be married!
