Digital.... Sunset over water... An old woman arrives here in memory of her fallen son.
Another random landscape.
Inspired by a fellow artist who's been posting some plein air paintings he's been doing in gouache, I got out a set I have from Royal Langnickel a couple of days ago and did these small (4x6", 6x4") studies from some of my reference photos. I used to use it when I was an illustrator but that was over twenty years ago. One reason why these are small. Gouache is opaque watercolor. It's pretty much the same except that it lacks the glycerine that makes watercolor transparent. My subjects are two landscapes from Mongolia and one big old tree I saw in the New Forest, England.
I started work today to do small drawings using various dip pen nibs, also adding lettering (I've worked as a sign painter, calligrapher and hand-lettering artist in the past). I used my own photo reference and did them quickly without fussing. I did the turkey vulture with a Gillott 291 Mapping Pen nib and the river otter with a Gillott Artist 1950 nib. In both cases the paper is Strathmore 300 vellum bristol, about 4x6".
I did these sketches a couple of weeks ago in and around Fort Bragg, California, a town on Highway 1 on the coast between San Francisco and Eureka, California, about 3 1/2 hours south of where we live.
Had time between a couple of appointments this past Tuesday to go to the Arcata Marsh and do a couple of quick sketches. I also got to try out my new Pilot Kakuno fountain pen and it’s terrific! Like it was made for sketching. I did them in a 7x5” Pentalic Nature Sketch sketchbook. If you want to start sketching with a fountain pen, I heartily recommend the Kakuno, which is only around $10. I bought mine from JetPens.
I just posted my first coloring pages in my Fox Studio Etsy shop! I created them with dip pens and ink on Clearprint Heavy Vellum using a variety of different pen nibs and had a lot of fun doing them. All are from photos I've taken during my travels over the years. https://www.etsy.com/shop/FoxStudio?section_id=26741451
