A fantasy overview of conifers next to water… A quick and easy doodle of the trees, a jumble of different colored ink lines. Pentel Aquash waterbrush touching the lines lightly and not overdoing it, letting some white breathe through the … Continue reading
Tracey Fletcher King shows this lovely walk frequently in images. I love it and wanted to have it on my wall… Now the postcard is winging its way to her instead! Started as a thang for Inktober, but added watercolors, … Continue reading
More postcards…. I want to find more shells to paint… The sand-dollars are from my brother Patrick when he was living on Pismo Beach. Except this one… from another state altogether! Sending this one off to my mom… She saved … Continue reading

Amy Lauren Gettys *thank you* gave us wonderful images to paint, and I had fun in this incredibly busy month putting together the second page in the spread. I haven’t done a collage in ages, and because of my shortened … Continue reading
Just having a bit of fun, playing with Ancient Copper ink OVER washes of watercolor. There is a method to my madness in terms of the experiment… Pentalic Aqua Journal, with a Pentalic HB woodless pencil, Platinum Carbon pen, Lamy … Continue reading

Necessity is the mother of fast sketches. I barely finished these by the end of our month on Capetown! I used a water-soluble graphite fat pencil and splashed watercolors over the sketches. From beginning to end in about 15 minutes … Continue reading
I haven’t much time this week. Necessity is making my goal for this sketchwalk to capture the essence of the view, let go of details. What stands out about the view? the buildings? the beach? the sky? the mountain? Capture … Continue reading
From a photo, middle of the night, watercolor pencil, splashing paint, no ink. Missing the ocean, need to dip my toes in sand and sea soon…. Aquabee Super Deluxe Journal, Caran D’ache watercolor pencil, White Uniball Signo, and Daniel Smith … Continue reading
Been so stressed for so many reasons. Middle of the night drawing. Moons on my mind. Watching Mitchell breath while painting ocean and palms and moon in her fullness, all calming. I almost woke him bringing salt back to bed … Continue reading
