Birches 2, Radiance, ink with watercolor washes

I remember, after I’d spent two weeks on the ink drawing that is the basis of this work, holding a wet brush full of yellow watercolor, not sure it was the right thing to do, and absolutely sure I’d screw it up if painted it in. I’m so glad I took the chance. We have […]

Marketplace: Warm it Up With Summery Oranges ~ The Creative Cat

Birches 2, Radiance, ink and watercolor

We have lovely birch groves here in Western Pennsylvania, and this image was reminiscent of one I had encountered while walking through the woods somewhere near me.

Apples and Oranges, pastel still lifes

I like to get the most out of my fruits and vegetables—like using them for still life sketches and paintings, and then enjoying them for a snack.
