8X10 Pen & Ink hit with pastels on Strathmore Water Color Paper: This is the frist in a series I did on my recent trip to Barcelona, now at home I’m coloring them with the dusty stuff.

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.

    Great work! I like how you placed the figures in the composition.

  • Gee thanks Lora, but except for the couple walking away from me, this group existed for 1/60 of a second just as they are here. I needed the couple walking away though so I put them in the corner, just loved their demeanor and her sack. LOL!
