Pen and Ink...and maybe some paint

WOYWW!

So, I hear that one of my WOYWW-4 ATC's has reached it's destination! Hope you enjoyed it Robyn! :)  When I receive mine I'll be sure to post pictures! How exciting!

Welcome back to my desk where I'm working on ATC's for a swap called Watercolor Trees. Right up my alley since I love trees and watercolors, TAH-DAH!  The ATC's are in the lower right of the picture.


On my computer wallpaper you will find the model for one of my ATC's. I have a fascination with pollarded willows. Go figure! My bookshelves in the background are becoming a gathering place for photos of kids, cards from them and my mom and all sorts of odds and ends that give me joy when I look at them.

 
This is an old book I bought recently from the library book sale. It's quite interesting and I'm hoping to learn something about mixing colors and coming up with the right one!
 


I just learned that my daughter has a walking/skating friend who has an Etsy shop and blog! I'd love to learn more about selling art. Have any of you had success selling through your Etsy shop? Any advice would be wonderful! This gal's blog is called Dancing Fork.  I'm sure she wouldn't mind me giving her some free advertising!

Addendum: After some playing with my watercolors this is what my four ATC's look like...so far. They still need some tweaking with pen...


 
 
 


Anyway, have a swell time visiting desks and blogs around the blogging universe. You are all an inspiration! To join the fun go to Julia's Stamping Ground blog!

Shalom!

    1. I created that face a while back for a 29 Faces Challenge and thought why not draw him again? Glad you like it!

  3. Pollarded willows?? You need to come to Wiltshire!! There's masses of managed trees here...used for logs and charcoal amongst other things. They are such a great shape, aren't they? Lol! My favourite of your paintings is the second one..you've really caught the shape I and attitude of the trees well!
