Tag Archives: Fabriano Watercolor journal
I’ve not liked the A4 Fabriano Journal. On the upside, the company was responsive to my issues. They sent me replacements, but I think the paper is just not up to snuff. It pills easily, and the color sits on … Continue reading
I had the opportunity to repair the finish on these lovely legs from a family table, and now I paint them. They were stacked in my finish studio for a long time in this manner and reminded me of ancient … Continue reading
Diamine Ancient Copper ink sketch out the studio window… They seem to be always working and never getting anything done… For years! To hear about classes, follow me on Facebook or check out my new and improved dkatiepowellart.com and sign … Continue reading
This is a detail from a Berkey & Gay chair, once part of the historic Hahn House. My challenge was to paint the chair detail in ink only — for Inktober — and I did, using two of my favorites, … Continue reading
Dancing light started this watercolor on top of the inked drawing on this page of sketches. I had to add lavender for her. This little stack of pennies on the edge of a stoop I could not get out of … Continue reading
She makes a great lip balm and essential oil. Passing her is always happy because her stall smells amazing and she is happy. I had to color her. It was essential! To hear about classes, follow me on Facebook or … Continue reading
This metal drum makes great sounds! He is always in some colorful tie-dye and has a look of a pirate! Maybe I need to come back and color these… To hear about classes, follow me on Facebook or check out … Continue reading
People are not my forte, but I keep doing them. Years of doing the graphic people in architectural drawings! I’ve taken to sketching buskers in the park. This is a student out to make a buck on the weekend. To … Continue reading
Picked up 40 pounds of Roasted Sugar Chilies last Saturday, and 20 lbs of Roasted Poblanos this Saturday. That is what we eat in a year! Making Pepper Pesto with them. Totally yummy. To hear about classes, follow me on … Continue reading
Finishing off the two-page layout for our Gaudi walk, I tackled the fireplace I desire! I keep seeing this sweet heart-shaped chair breaking into song and dance in Angela Lansbury’s voice!. The final layouts finished by the collage of four … Continue reading
For the Foyer, I squinted to imagine what might be seen in a small sketch. I went in with grisaille in Lexington Grey to suggest the tones; later I painted the color of the marble with Super5 Frankfurt warm grey … Continue reading
The rooftop chimney skins in the Palace Guell are so beautiful — like sculpture gardens. When the families lived in this palace, I wonder how often they used the rooftop sculpture garden and for what — did they have lunch … Continue reading
Made a map of our walk, starting at the World Trade center at the wharf. Heading up to the Palace Guell, Casa Batllo, and the Casa Mila! To hear about classes, follow me on Facebook or check out my new … Continue reading
This month on our virtual walk we are looking for Antonio Gaudi… Admittedly, by the time I landed in Barcelona I was burned out on travel, and spent more time eating and shopping for boots before returning home… However, Gaudi was … Continue reading
Picking up an old Fabriano Watercolor journal that I really don’t like *but will finish off in some way, like the 100 faces challenge* I came across an old drawing of the building in the Pearl that originally housed Cargo, … Continue reading
This shows you how busy I’ve been! April 29th PAG took a field trip to Donovan Harding’s amazing woodworking shop, Monitor Millworks. He creates doors and windows the way they did them in the late 19th century. He was kind … Continue reading
Oregon green rivals Ireland, no two ways about it. Below is a favorite crook in the road on our way from Portland to Southern Oregon near the South Fork of the Umpqua River. Pulled over to sketch it — and … Continue reading
