A lot to want to ESCAPE from this last couple weeks… Sad angry politics, riots, and my MAC is a lemon and screwed with my reports. So I go to my happy spot… doodling Palm Trees and Daisies and Stars … Continue reading
Inks on sale at Goulet prompted a few new colors to miraculously land on my desk. I’d sampled Nemosine Aeolis Palus Red + Solar Storm (orange). Right, I played with the orange in both the Pilot medium nib Metropolitan … Continue reading
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. Brunaille and … Continue reading
I had no idea when I began playing with the Hahnemühle Post Cards that I would love them so much! Trading postcards, sending an actual watercolor, and now, gifting them to Patreons! Now I am comfortable with the ribbed rough paper, … Continue reading
A second image of Randy’s Gardenia created during the video. Terry Phillips’ Morning Glories climbing her bird feeder, showing a bit of the layering process from ink to finish. Hahnemühle makes a longer post card, which I played with above. … Continue reading
I am sure there are hundreds of amazing and honest foster parents in the world, but ours wasn’t one of them. Because of her lies and antics, our guys cost us roughly a thousand dollars more than they “should” have … Continue reading
*btw, that is not a rat… it is he with his head under a roll of cotton trying to find a rattle mouse he thinks went under the roll. Also, this was written when they had not yet come off … Continue reading
More middle-of-the-night playing-with-inks postcards. In this one the delicate nature of the blossoms went a little awry, and mostly it was from overdoing the ink layers, then adding watercolors, and every thing began to moosh around and so I blobbed … Continue reading
Summertime in Oregon is announced when the Hood Rivers are ripe. They have a burst of the sweetest flavor, and they are gone too quickly! I missed the official Solstice since it came on the 20th this year — But … Continue reading
My journal of Boy and Gurl will be told in the Hahnemühle Watercolour Book, my spring gift to me! I wish I’d done this for all my kitties… but back then it was architectural drawings or big acrylic paintings. I LOVE … Continue reading
Chives. Love them in salad. J.Herbin has two inks in this post, a lovely green and pink. I forget the name of this daisy-like flower… not a sunflower. CC’s posies, again, can’t remember the name of them! Bougainvillea. Home. Still … Continue reading
Not these days… He is hearing the crazy cats down the hall in the studio and watching at the door to see if we bring someone into his space… He’s dropped weight and tests came back and no indicators, so … Continue reading
Last month’s Every Day in May challenge, and my requiring no pencil, has a hold over in that as I am stressed and busy I continue with just a sketch of anything I pull out of the bag of images, … Continue reading
Working this months Virtual Sketchwalk (all flowering thangs) on Hahnemühle Post Cards, mostly directly in ink again, as I have no time so am doing quick sketches. Pepper trees remind me of Canoga Avenue in the San Fernando Valley, which … Continue reading
So another experiment. I’ve been softening my ink and liquid watercolors by diluting them with water, and decided to see what happened when I used them almost full strength. AAACK! Above, when the full-strength are softened with water… After the … Continue reading
Susan posted a lovely image of red laundry hanging on a line, and the image swirled around in my head, and got me thinking about how much an image can evoke. That single image brought back the smell of summer … Continue reading
gads turn off the sound! mac is not letting me turn it off during export! I haven’t done a prompt with challenges in a couple of years. I have no trouble thinking of things to sketch and time is what … Continue reading
