Plein-air pen and wash on paper


Leave a comment

This poinsettia kept staring at me over the Christmas holidays resulting in this watercolor picture, 10″ x 11″ size.


It is a departure from my usual subjects and the pen & ink sketches, as this one started with a pencil drawing on a student grade watercolor paper. The cheap paper acts as a catalyst for working more uninhibited and have some fun. There is lots more of that paper left so I will have to find similar still-life setups before the winter is over.
