I love inkpainting, but I’ve been stalled a bit on my own growth as a watercolorist…
I am actually a bit bored. Not that I am very very good —
but I have a handle on watercolors after playing with them for several years.
My goals are not realism, and so without committing to that,
my growth as an artist was stalled and uninspired.
I was looking at Jerome Gray’s amazing buildings this weekend
(@jcgarch on Instagram) and decided to steal from him!
He continually delights me with his watercolors!
I tried the Pittock in the style of… hoping Jerome is flattered.
By playing, I am finding an excitement for my own path again —
bold messy colors and watery ink linework. Made me want to play again…
Loose sketch in a soluble Pilot black ink;
heavy wet watercolors without too much acre of they ran into each other;
final addition of a bit of waterproof platinum black carbon inked lines f
or a bit of my playful linework. I am happy with this one!
