Elmwood in Ink

As I started this rendering of the historic Elmwood Cemetery, my intention was to simply draw this landscape with pen and ink.  As I completed the complex drawing, it seemed to call for some color.  So, I pulled out my classic Prima "Watercolor Confections" pan set, and added a little color with my brush pens.  I can't believe I like this set so much!  I wish I had all of their collections!  They are small, I can pack them in pocket or purse, and who knew I would be so happy with the brush pens?  I thought I could only use my favorite, very pricy watercolor brushes for such work!  Many, many thanks to fellow artist Peggy Wilson for turning me on to these babies!  This painting makes 1449 in 1449 days  :)

  9. Beautiful sketch and so pretty with the added colour Tammie, I'm thinking I need to look into that pen set. It sounds ideal.
    I wish you and yours a very Happy New Year and all the best for a creative 2017 :D
    p.s. I haven't had time during this last week to create any artwork, so I thought I'd just visit everyone instead. I'm having a great time!
