Time honored tradition now in the pen community… I’m ready! Kill Winter with Orange! I’m for warm colors warm weather and this year the cold in the studio never seems to end despite woolly socks and a heater! Cold cold … Continue reading
Praying that someday soon we will feel comfortable enough to drive out to the beach! To hear about classes, follow me on Instagram, Facebook or check out my new, improved dkatiepowellart.com “Memory is more indelible than ink.” Anita Loos, Gentlemen … Continue reading
I thought I was done but last night I rallied and did another dozen… Craig Eckersley and Gwen Scott (MUCH prettier than I draw her). Wanting to try Robert Oster Aussie Brown helped…. Also, finding one person with many images … Continue reading
I forgot to publish my entire journal from the end of last year… What a period! Lotta writing… Less watercolor (no time) but more ink painting. To hear about classes, follow me on Facebook or check out my new, improved … Continue reading
New Moon, New Journal. I love it when that happens… Parvati is starting this journal. Inked, and wouldn’t you know it after a couple years I decided to change the ink in my Metro and so she is drawn in … Continue reading
As I move back into posting, I will start with the pages I was drawing of the Vista House, below, when my mom died. (Not ready to write about that yet.) I don’t think we ever went there, though maybe … Continue reading

Finally moved from the postcards to the Hahnemühle Watercolour Journal and got serious about these quilt studies. Seems I love painting them! Maybe I’ll do many squares to sell! This one didn’t turn out quite as well as I’d liked… … Continue reading
The 30×30 Direct Watercolor Challenge started June 1… The idea is to begin to paint directly with no inking and no real pencil work. (I cheat.) If it were not Marc Holmes thang, I might not try it. He is … Continue reading
If you are a watercolor artist your definition of “waterproof” must meets the highest standards. A lovely drawing in ink has to hold while washes of watercolor pour over it; the linework must stay put. When people say, “It is … Continue reading
Yes, another Palette! I swear my last one (fingers crossed!) Jenn understands that I paint in bed in the middle of the night AND like lots of colors. On her recommendation (Just Add Water Silly) I bought the Derwent Empty … Continue reading
My mom may be unable to stay in her apartment. This is hard for us, harder for her. Fortunately, not one of her friends, doctors, nurses, etc., disagrees with us, which helps to make the decision clear-cut. Still, is is … Continue reading
My favorite thing to do with the Hahnemuhle’s YouTangleart Tiles it to make notes to leave for Mitchell to find: in his calendar, on his computer, on his toothbrush! They are not built for watercolor, but if I clip the … Continue reading
This journal started in Diwali, and continued to just after the New Year. I anticipated that it would be about light and ritual and women… There was instead a good deal of unanticipated loss. I withheld many pages from this … Continue reading
Jilanne Hoffmann has a great blog on writing, and is a blogging buddy. She shared her dogwood poem with me; I had to put it into my art journal. I am grateful for the friends I’ve made through blogging. Thank … Continue reading
We were going to a client meeting before the leaves dropped, and the Lake Oswego trees were exceptional! I had a chance to sketch before coming back to the studio.I tried this technique unsuccessfully (not what I was going for, … Continue reading
