Little Things

I have been working on a piece larger
 than usual for me. 
More about that in a later post.
 It took all my "art" time" for about a week. 
 It is done now and I can work on small pieces which take only a few hours at the most and afford much needed quick gratification.

On Kate Powell's Facebook site, Virtual Sketchwalk,
 member Michael Gettys posted some fabulous photos
 from his trip to Oahu, Hawaii for members
 of the group to paint or draw. 
I have been to Hawaii.  The islands are so 
heavenly who could resist trying one's hand at 
drawing some of those great photos.
 I chose two of them to draw in ink 
and one other for a pencil work.

Palm Tress and Umbrellas, ink with background 
made with pastel pencil.
Fierce Hawaiian carving drawn with ink with a 
 background done in Prismacolor pencils.

Hawaiian Dancer done with No. 2 Paper Mate mechanical pencil
 with alcohol ink background.

I drew these three in a sketch book 
that my daughter gave me for Christmas last year.
I guess I could call them my Sketch Book Project.

Hop over to (00ps)
