9X12 Pen & Ink Sketch with Acrylic Washes on Arches Water Color #135 Paper :
After 3 days of sleet and snow and high winds this day the sun came out and bathed everything in sparkling light and wished for warmth. I was always going to go back to this quick sketch I made with pen and ink and acrylic washes, but I kind of gave up.

I am semi retired and love to travel with my 9X12 #140 Strathmore pad, my Sharpie Ultra Fine ink pen and five or six sticks of pastels or acrylics to color in my “finds” Sometimes I get real lucky and my wife Dawn will take some pictures I can use later. I seem to always be able to give some kind of sketch to my subjects or those bystanders who desperately want to give me some advice.

    Glad you went back to it Randy! Really beautiful with a stunning mix of colours. I love those eyecatching splashes of red.

  • Thanks Lynda. Coming from you, I am encouraged to keep trying with my rather blunt style.

    I can see why the Impressionism Cafe gave it a feature. Love the looseness in the brush strokes, particularly in the water and reflections. Good work Randy.

  • Thanks Jim. Welcome back. I look forward to your new postings.
