New Ink, Sketches, and Finished Stuff


Ebenezer Archer Kling and Scott Campbell (ScottC) are two artists that I'm currently borrowing a certain style element from, for coming work. Using a color as their line in their watercolor work. 


I usually favor an india ink either applied before painting or after the paint's are dry.


I'm finding that I really like the look of a colored line....so maybe the ink will stay with black n white drawings only...I'd like to make more of a mess too, with my inks. I need to get sloppier.






So I completed a small handful of paintings for an auction for charity at my girlfriend's workplace. Some people who are handy around a camera or knitting needles make things for the auction, and they asked me to toss some things in too. So, since it's an environmental, earthy kinda theme...I painted the following mountain ranges....


There's the Blue Mountains, Belcher Mountains, Mosquito Range, and Superstition Mountains.
I was looking through a list of ranges in North America and these put silly ideas into my head... 



I also re-did a rendition of a word/phrase that's been stuck in my head for a while. Hot Dog Stand. I painted another version, this one with color linework...and not on crappy sketchbook paper....


I enjoyed how the new one turned out. And to end this, here's some doodles that have been finding their way on and off my table...and also some FW Acrylic inks I found at Blicks for HALF PRICE!
