Tag Archives: Hahnemühle Post Cards
It was an honest mistake. I paint on Hahnemühle Post Card so often I just assumed that I’d grabbed one in the middle-of-the-night… so sad after finishing to send off that it wasn’t a postcard! I wondered why the watercolor … Continue reading
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
When I wake in the middle of the night I can’t sleep I need something to do… I reach for a Hahnemühle Post Card and a stack of images I keep by the bed… Friends prompt middle-of-the-night postcards… silly comments … Continue reading
“For surely you are never forgot!” I’ve been going a bit crazy trying to find the rest of this poem about forget-me-nots. Literally got me out of bed going through books at 2am searching for likely places I’d have it… … 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
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
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
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
I can’t get enough of these crazy Hahnemühle Post Cards. I am so swamped with deadlines right now I barely have time to make marks, but I have a stack of these next to my bed in a tin … Continue reading
These remind me of home, Southern California. They used to cover the hills before the dang hills became covered with houses! I am starting to get used to the rough textured watercolor paper of the postcards… Like any material element, … Continue reading
Lady Beatrix has attitude. She owns one of my best friends. She has taken possession of the blanket I made Ruthie. This was a FAST sketch and experiment with watery inks and sprayed water on sample paper. To hear about … Continue reading
My studio paints were overflowing from my big 30-years-old Prismacolor tin into a QoR watercolor tin. I hated the QoR tin. The rounds which you think would be great for watercolor mixing but they made the tin so it flips … Continue reading
