Tree #147/10,00 The Rhine Pine


A doodled pine-ish tree. Watercolor and ink in a Canson Watercolor Sketchbook, 140 lbs cold-pressed paper.


Art and Oatmeal with California Peaches. First I sketch with the watercolors.


Then details are added by doodling with a Pigma Micron .05 pen.

Tree #145/10,000: a series of hand-drawn arcs and linear marks...


Abstractedly done with acrylics and cellophane wrap in a Strathmore 500 Series Mixed Media Sketchbook. 


Close-up of texture made by crinkling cellophane over the wet paint and left on page until the paint was dry. Under layer of texture is from a layer of gesso added to the page before painting.


Didn't want the circles to be perfect so I drew them by hand instead of tracing round objects. More organic this way.
