I Spy

June 17, 2016

Cats tend to assume that they are invisible, but if you look hard, you can still find them.  This painting is in acrylics.  I am intending to do some larger works on canvas and gouache just won’t work for that, so I am staring to learn to use acrylics.  Transparency is the biggest issue.  Gouache gives […]

Owl and the Pusssycat

October 4, 2015

#InkTober Day 4, although it has a bit more watercolor than ink.  Let’s just say that the ink was quite deliberate; especially I am still waiting for some truly waterproof carbon ink for my fountain pens to arrive in Chapel Hill from China.  Meanwhile, I am using dip pens and not waterproof ink, applied after […]
