Pen and ink studies

Two studies, the first, once again Stony Brook Harbor.  Mike and I went there on Sunday.  What I loved was the low tide and everything was back lit, so it was blinding.  I used my Kuretake letter pen, with sepia ink and waterbrush.

The second my little brown tea pot, always a fun subject.  Happy Painting everyone.

Hi Joanie,

Love the Stony Harbor sketch, you do so well with pen and ink. Very tranquil setting and of course the teapot is charming.

As usual, I love both of the sketches, Joan. I love your control of the ink. Last time I tried, my ink bled too much or ran too much or something. Try try again (me; not you!)...

Great sketches! I did that same view a few weeks ago. I was back up there painting the views yesterday, and did 2 small paintings. We should get together for a day of painting!

Hi and thank you all. Nora, you work is amazing. Sue, thank you ,Crimson Leaves, I use the Kuretake brush pen, so I don't have to worry about the pen bleeding. They are great to work with, give them a try.

When we get back from Virginia, I would love to go out painting with you. Stony Brook is one of my favorites, and Sayville dock.

All the best to you all,
