Pens: Pitt artists pens, in black (size S), and two shades of gray (size B)
Paper: Stathmore Bristol
My condo building was having repairs done and was wrapped in plastic and surrounded by scaffolding for months. About a month ago the scaffolding came down and I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to have my balcony - and my view - back. I've been taking photos of the evening sky. My view is to the west, I can see the Olympic Mountains on the other side of Puget sound. I don't think I could ever get tired of this view.
I may not have been blogging much as of late, but I have been painting! These are some of the watercolors I have been working on this summer. As usual I have been using Daniel Smith watercolors, Pitt artist pens, white gel pens, and Prismacolor pencils on Arches paper. (I usually use cold press, sometimes 300 lb and sometimes 140 lbs. )
Sometimes I feel like I put the best of myself into my paintings, and then I am left with not a lot of consequence to say. Hence, not a lot of blogging, but I am going to try - once again - to do better.
