#669 (New Image)

56 x 71cm. Canvas, textured from paint-over of older painting. Gesso ground. Ink and watercolor wash: brush, pen. The texture defeated what I’d intended to do with the pen and ink–so I went with the flow. Still want to try a larger piece pen & ink. Different surface. This much improved image, from my Canon G10 (Thank you, George Kuetemeyer!)

#680

30.5 x 22.9 cm. Pen & ink, watercolor on Bristol paper. I chose the Bristol because I wanted the smooth surface for pen work. Had intended only a minimal touch of color, but Merlin Magic Cat knocked my elbow while I was holding the brush… most of the color was added after to compensate from the unintended blurb. I think I need to use Arches or Fabriano hot press water color paper for this kind of work.
