just a nibble and... back to originals!

$40 - 5x7"print in an 8x10"mat

Well, that's it for another Inktober. Working with the Elegant Writer Pen was an absolute joy. It's water-soluble nature made the dark colourful inks merge with the watercolour beautifully. I am so sad that it's fun aspect also means it's not permanent and so, will likely fade in time. So, I made a few prints of each painting, keeping a copy for myself and sending out a few to customers. That'll be the last of making prints for awhile. 
With November coming, it's back to original paintings!! Yippee!

sketching on a thursday afternoon

This little sketch happened today. I'm enjoying making short videos of my painting process. You can see this one painted HERE on Instagram. The clips are 1 minute each because that's the length limit Instagram accepts. So... it's in two parts. ; )

early autumn

$40 - 5x7 print with 8x10"mat

I'm having a blast with this new water-soluble pen that I've been using for Inktober (#inktober2018) It's called the Elegant Writer Pen and it releases green and a bit of pink ink when wet. You can see two videos of me painting it on Instagram
The ink will fade with time, so I have made prints of it on artist quality paper.

morning bears and smokey eyes

Inktober Day 4 and 5... the fun continues! I spilled a spot of tea on my husky drawing, right on his little snout. Fortunately, the wash of watercolour hides it.

Billy Goat

I drew this with the awesome Elegant Writer Pen for Inktober Day One! With a touch of a wet brush, the pinks and greens in the black ink emerge and flow, with a mind of their own. I added a dash of pink to his nose. ; )
