9×12 Pen & Ink Study hit with Acrylics on #140 Strathmore Paper. The pen & ink work kind of got eliminated as the colors and the heat of the sun took over. Don’t go to paint here without a big umbrella! USA

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.

    Terrific Ra i can feel the heat

  • Thank you my friend, I am going to sleep on that idea of how to bring that light blue inference to those tender little yellow flowers so close to the sand, almost in it, to the foreground. I am sure it can be done. Maybe the shadow side which I haven’t even thought of yet. Hmmm?

  • Thanks Jim these little tiny wild flowers are so close to the sand that they feel like carpet.
