Hahnemühle Post Cards, 7, Palms

A tropical island, one place I go that is my happy place…
Not too hot, Pacific Ocean, breezes.
Brunaille and grisaille underpainting.  Sent!

Laguna Beach iconic view — from one of many photos I’ve taken over the years.

This palm is going on my wall to remind me that you should push forth when you hate what is happening with an image and see where it takes you.
All ink, it wasn’t behaving and I HATED it… but then I figured what the hell?
I hate it already so I will play with it.  I kept layering more ink and watching the happy accidents (runs where I didn’t expect them) and now I kinda like it!

I had no idea when I began playing with the Hahnemühle Post Cards
that I would love them so much!
