I found this old car going to Sweetwater TX. i had to ask more than once for Ken to stop!
It is done in a new sketchbook. Strathmore 8x5.5.  I used the brown ink that I love.
I am teaching a 2 day 'Sketchbook' Class June 23-24.  It is almost full, if you are interested, contact me. It is $100 for both days.

old Blue Pickup

Friday in class we concentrated on just drawing with ink. They did great. Drawing this way gives you confidence I think.
The old blue pick up was drawn with the DeAtrementis Tobacco ink, which I love!
after I got it done, there was so much blue with the sky I added the side boards.

The bottom one was an old truck, and I used an elegant writer to sketch it, then I added the imaginary city scape behind it just for fun.  The Elegant writer changes colors when wet. I really like using them too.

Sketchbook Workshop June 23-24. come join us!
I still have a few spots left. $100 for both days.

More Sketches- Sketchbook Workshop June 23-24th

These are in a 5x5 Square hand Book Sketch book, which finishes it! Yay! a new sketchbook!

The first one is something I made up playing with markers and using some ideas from a sketchbook by James Richards. I used his tree ideas, etc. plus I just used a black marker, then the red awning with watercolor.

The little red car was fun. A photo I took in Wolfforth, TX.

I am having a sketchbook 2 day workshop, June 23-24th. It is here in my little studio at Plains.
The cost is $100 for both days. The space is limited but still have room now.
