It’s been a busy few weeks–with a tremendously inspiring March for Our Lives making last weekend particularly memorable! Art and sketching have had to take a back seat while so much else (much of it historically important) is going on….
With Spring finally here, however, there’s no question that the “plein air” kit of watercolors is going to get more use. Thus, a refresher in “Line and Wash” watercolor sketching with pen-and-ink in the form of a two-day workshop this week was perfectly timed. Below some of the paintings I completed in the workshop, the purpose of which was to combine use of pen (such as a fine-point Sharpie, black or brown, or India ink sketched with a bamboo stick) with watercolor washes.
Lots more to learn, as always, but it’s fun to be engaged in painting again.
