I wish I knew where I obtained this image… I know it is a friend’s but I just don’t know whose! Bad on me for not labeling! Direct watercolor, done quickly. ☾ To hear about classes, follow me on Instagram, … Continue reading
The USPS moved our office which was in the Alphabet District to another location. It is not a safe location, as it is deserted and is surrounded by homeless people (not that they are all dangerous, but they attract nutcases … Continue reading
As a lover of inky lines, the class in direct watercolor changed me. I LOVED creating this very fast watercolor by diving in, no planning. I wish I had a bit more foresight about placement, (the image was crowded to … Continue reading
New month, new walk for the Virtual Sketchwalk group on FaceBook. Berlin is our city this month, with contributions from two photographers, Rich Matheson and Eli Weisz. I played fast and loose with this sketch using a Sailor Fude pen. … Continue reading

I stole a photo from a friend in Florida — Love this one Eliska! I collect great posies and keep them to sketch… ☾ To hear about classes, follow me on Instagram, Facebook or check out my new, improved dkatiepowellart.com … Continue reading
