March brings some sketches
I can't believe it is March already. I was going to do another Feb. update, then I caught a cold and just didn't have the energy to draw, so the update didn't happen. The sparrow sitting at the feeder in the above drawing was going to be the header for that...

More Sketches, Titmouse and Stuff

More Ink over Watercolor, some Graphite Sketches
ACK, where has the time gone, I kept meaning to post an update to the blog, then I ended up too tired, or busy and it didn't get done. Sorry about that. Above is another of my watercolor washes with ink overlay. For this one I actually sat down and did some...

More Watercolor and ink with some pencil sketches
Above is another of my studies using a watercolor wash background and then ink on top. The ink this time was Acrylic Indigo Blue with a dip pen. This is OK, but not what I am looking for so I have another in the works, but the inking I want to put on top of...
