Pen and ink sketch of a deep sea creature, the Hatchetfish.
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…
My small Altoid tin houses a few pans of watercolors: hansa yellow, undersea green, burnt sienna, alizarin crimson, indigo, ultramarine blue, quinacrodon gold. Also included are few fine tipped markers and a pentel water brush, and a Strathmore watercolor journal. This is the first time for this kit with these tools and colors. This kit is setup for tropical climates on the coast. Artist Cathy Johnson has a wonderful YouTube video on all her travel kits, she has many. She keeps a kit in the glove compartment of her car. Such a good idea! It’s a good thing, as Martha would say ;o)
