Thoughts under my drawing pencil


I've been busy this month teaching pen and watercolor. It's been a lot of fun, not only for me, but I think for the students too.

One of my favorite mediums is pen. I love drawing the subject in pencil first and then adding the pen. What a difference it makes. When I add color, such a watercolor paint, it sometimes really sparkles.

We studied frogs, butterflies, trees, sunflower and more this past session. It was fun to learn about each subject for our journals. I conducted demonstrations and of course, offered my encouragement. But I must say, the gals did a spectacular job!

A mixture of wet-on-wet and wet on dry.

Learning how to do layers to create depth.

Drawing a tree in ink.

Then adding color.

Providing space for salutations!

Learning how to fix a mistake

I'm offering another fall class session, entitled Fall is in the Air. We'll be covering some fun subjects. See below for more information.

Hope I can see you in one of the classes soon. BTW, we will be exploring acrylics in a special four-week session in December. See you soon.
