5X11 Pen & Ink study hit with Water Color on #140 Strathmore Water Color Paper: This bridge was so respected that in 1944, as the Germans retreated from the Allied Forces, instead of blowing up this bridge they knocked down Medieval structures on each side of the bridge to block traffic. This is wonderful place to, paint if it’s raining, but heavy with tourist who want to help you. I got the tower leaning a little bit, and ran out of room on the right, please think ahead next time. Now SOLD!

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.

    Wonderful art Randy, amazing details with gorgeous watercolour applications.

  • Thank you very much my friend, I was stunned with how the ink ran with the application of just a little watercolor, but thrilled with the look under the bridge as it happened. I have to get better water colors though, these are cheap Guitar brand?
