Mud Flats

I like markers because they make me think like a painter and force me to put out the extra effort to get it right the first time and not count on erasing.  On this one, however, a little judicious erasing would have made it so much stronger, although I still like it.  Again, the overlapping marks are more prominent in the scan than the original.  I hope I can eventually get them to be more representative.  Think I'll go draw...

  1. Your marker drawings are such fun! I would love to spend a day sketching with you sometime. I have not yet tried marker drawing and these two sketches bring to mind a wonderful afternoon we spent with painting friends. We had just met at Diane McClary's home for the launching of Mary Balcomb's wonderful Sergei Bongart book. As we were leaving, you mentioned some new pens you were using for sketching. Your sketchbook was in the car so shared it with me. At the time I thought, "What a great idea! I should try this." . . . That was ten years ago!


Make a comment. I enjoy hearing what you have to say.
