Picking up the pencil again, today is a practice of reflection and curiosity.
I specialize in drawing.
Sketched on location, then penned over it at home from a photo. I had fun with this!
Dip pen with ink wash and watercolor. Drawn from a photo but I crumbled it some.
Micron and Copic pens with watercolor
Pen and ink with a homemade bamboo pen!
This bird gets a lot of attention at my mom's house! He deserves a portrait. Brush pen (love it!), watercolor.
Watercolor was part of a Domestika class, then I went over it with a micron pen. Hello Chameleon!
Dried lavender, using charcoal pencil. It smeared in my sketchbook later on, but I'm okay with that.
Micron pens. I wonder if I took it too far, but there were so many fronds!
Work in progress.
Looking for shapes in the bottle, and I found my reflection - twice! A perfect metaphor for this whole process.
Meet Grumpy Bunny. First attempts with micron pens.
My first time using cut paper, to add the branch. I think the chameleon is more comfortable now.
How I was feeling about my corner of the kitchen table the other morning. Successfully drawn before 8am! Watercolor with pens.
Pen and ink of our old wagon.
Watercolor, gouache and pen.
My son and I were blowing bubbles in liquid watercolors with dish soap, then putting the bubbles on the paper. I took a pen to some of mine, and these little guys appeared.
Only drawing it's shapes revealed so much more than all the green I see everyday! Maybe I'll color it in one of these days.
My son is so proud of his hair. It was fun to paint it!
