Street in Victoria, British Columbia

Street in Victoria, British Columbia. Copic markers on Arches watercolor paper.

This drawing is based on a photo I took in August 2009. I'd rather look at these flowers than at the bleak wintry scene outside my window today.

Barn. Copic sketch markers on Arches watercolor block.

I was looking at some Van Gogh and Monet today and felt inspired. Of course, it's hard to get the right effect when using markers instead of paint, but I tried anyway.

Ottawa and Monroe Center

Ottawa and Monroe Center, Grand Rapids, Michigan. Uni-ball Vision micro pen and Winsor & Newton watercolors on Arches watercolor block, 10"x14".

This is what I did with my snow day on Friday--well, most of my weekend really. You can see here what it looked like before I added watercolor.

Tea. Winsor & Newton watercolors and Uni-ball Vision pen on Arches watercolor paper.

I cleaned up my tea cupboard and thought I'd draw this assortment to practice my hand-lettering.
