Western Art is my very favorite! This is a saddle with a white seat, on a white horse.  I used the DeAtramentis Tobacco ink to draw with.  It is not waterproof so you can soften it.
This is in a mole skin sketchbook.  I really like the way it paints!

Wash Day

This is an old sketch, done on location in New Mexico. Such fun memories here!
Don Getz taught the sketching plein air workshop, and was one of my favorite workshops ever!
Wish I could go again.

New Sketches

These are just some more Santa Fe sketches. For the fish and the cactus I put down swatches of color, let it dry then sketched on the color.
