Ink and Watercolor on Watercolor Paper, 12" x 16"
SOLD at $15 plus $8 shipping.
Our new assignment in Sketchbook Skool was to do a continuous line drawing in ink, and then to use watercolor over top. I loved my still life set up, but the first two attempts were sad at best. This is my third try, still not great, but for now, it'll have to do. The lawn needs mowing.

If I cover up the left eye, this does look something like me (minus the double chins and wattles.) Actually, if I cover either eye. Which tells me that the eyes are off. But a likeness is really tough. This is part of this weeks' assignment in Sketchbook Skool, where it's "selfie" week. I am very much enjoying the skool.

There is a lovely creek that runs along The Devil's Backbone, a natural rock formation just outside of Marlinton, WV. The creek is variously called Beech Creek or Knapp's Creek. Maybe it's like some streets and changes its name as it meanders. Below are a couple of photos of the Devil's Backbone, truly impressive in person. It also has an interesting history.

This one is pretty big, and has some "presence" to it.
A cheerful painting for a happy wall.
