Pen and Ink

Pen and ink studies, using my Noodles Ahab pen a simple line drawing.  The second, using Kuretake pen with sepia ink. Great fun.

Button Frenzi

My thanks to Jane Minters blog on buttons, which I found through In and Out of the Studio.

What a fascinating subject, this is just a quick study, will do many more.

Happy painting everyone.

The Little Church

Little Church in Sayville. 140lb. watercolor paper.


There so much to learn.  I am presently trying to get my paypal button under my art work.  I succeeded in getting the widget displayed on my right side bar.  This is all so very exciting and confusing at the same time.  So there you have it, fellow bloggers.  My new adventure in the world of selling art on line.  I have just signed up with the Daily Paintworks , my thanks to Nora MacPhail-Artist a very talented artist.

New toys and paper and paint test

 Last week my new art supplies arrived.  The Schminke pan paint box, got a great bargin and to my surprise the company included the 300lb. watercolor block.  I also got my new books.  Capturing the Moment in Oils by David Curtis, love his work, he also is a great watercolorist.

I experimented with  the paper and paint, still have to practice. They were meant for journaling and outdoor painting so I am sure they will do.

Frank F. Penney Boat Builders

Mike and I went to the Sayville Marina.  I did this pen and ink and watercolor sketch sitting in the back seat of my car. Will probably go back many more times. There is a method to my madness, in time my goal is to paint large scale paintings from my sketches.

Watercolor workshop

 On Wednesdays a group of us meet at the Bayshore Library.  It's a watercolor workshop and there is usually a still life set up, but we can paint whatever we choose to work on, great fun.  These are my studies from Wednesday.
