VSW: Pasadena Rose Bowl Parade

Pepé Le Pew was a favorite cartoon of mine…
Had to be the first sketch of the New Year in the Virtual Sketchwalk group!
I wanted you to see that I had water-colored his black with a dark sepia
but didn’t like the watercolor next to the Platinum Carbon ink so
I brushed it with De Atramentis in a Pentel waterbrush.
I should have waited until the ink dried.  Duh!
(The distortion is that I took one image while holding it down.)


Decided to move him into the second image of hot air balloons on a float.
(I always think of Santa Fe and Napa Valley.)


I haven’t posted items because I had not way to download
the second camera due to puter troubles!

And in case you don’t know who the rascal is:

Moleskin A4 Watercolor Journal, Fineline masking fluid,
Lamy Al-Star with De Atramentis Document Black ink,
Platinum Carbon Pen with Platinum Carbon ink waterproof cartridges,
Holbein, and DS Primatek watercolors, and Daniel Smith Watercolors.

    I always like Pepe Le Pew – beautiful drawings, Kate – I love the colors, particularly on a gray winter morning.
