snowed in

SOLD

Still having fun with my bamboo pen and permanent Calli artist's ink, both of which I bought at the art store.
$40 - 6"x6" watercolour painting.

  1. Nora, I have to tell you (and maybe I have in previous comments?) but I too LOVE your style! If I ever have some extra cash around (certainly don't after Christmas), I plan to buy one of your paintings. I love the lines, the way you use your colors,etc. and I especially love the 'scenes'. Thanks for sharing with us.

  2. Lovely light feeling to this and your use of a largely cool palette evokes the conditions and makes the warms ping.

  4. A bamboo pen sounds so exotic! Also complicated. (I've never used a dip pen - maybe it's not so bad!) Either way, beautiful result! Really wonderful, snowy scene.

  5. Love the soft colors with the hint of brightness! You turn an ordinary scene, like a bike left out in the snow into something truly beautiful!

  10. This is so winter and I get a feeling that the snow came last, so convincing is it. I love your winter cityscapes and I love this one. PS! I usually do some kind of line work first.

  11. Thanks for showing us the pen, it looks like fun! Just a question, do you work from life or from photos? My guess is from life because I feel a sense of direct observation. You must also be freezing, thats a lot of snow!

  19. Beautiful drawing! I especially love the snow on the seats and tires and how they kind of blend in with the ones in the back. your drawings are always so fun. A few questions, if you don't mind - how do you attach the drawing to the board? What kind of wood support is it?

    Ich schaffe es garnicht, so oft bei dir vorbei zuschauen

  21. Just looking at it makes me shiver ... Perhaps I prefer our constant rain after all! Not a fan of snow, and your painting really puts across all the feelings of 'snowed up'. But I do like the painting, and the great drawing.

  22. That fantastic Nora! I'm trying to find some warmth in Winter watercolours at the moment, they take forever to dry though don't they? Enjoy your day!
