Quick Sketch : Young Gil
Ink on paper. I call these TV sketches as I sketch them while I’m watching a show. One doesn’t have time to be fussy, so the line work remains fresh. I used scrap paper and you can see some of the text from the back side bleed through. I have a sketch book, but where are they when you want one…
DIY Do it Yourself
I’m a big fan of DIY and I love the color Indigo. Finding great creative ideas on the web is easy, especially with Pinterest.
Here’s my next project, Shibori Dish Towels, from Alice & Lois, http://aliceandlois.com/indigo-dye-series-shibori-dish-towels/
Previously I had written about the small watercolor kit I put together for my trip to Mexico. My small Altoid tin worked well for holding the 7 pans of watercolors I was able to squeeze in, along with 2 small pieces of sponge. My Pentel waterbrush worked admirably. And my Strathmore watercolor journal was just the right size for the studies.
The only thing I did not take into consideration was how tired I would be at the end of the day. Jet lag, scuba diving, nitrogen, and the heat all took a toll on my energy level. It was only at the end of our trip that I was able to paint. And I’m glad that I brought my small kit; I was even able to paint in the airport waiting room. The waterbrush made it possible for me to paint without having a cup of water. I love my Pentel waterbrush.
