|Walnut Ink sketch June 20, 2011 ©Sweet Enemy Art|
Thanks to Arkonbey and some Indian Roast coffee, I've actually been experiencing some nice mornings out in the garden. On Monday, when I didn't have to be to work until lunchtime, I took my beloved walnut ink out to the garden area and did this sketch, about 9" x 10". This is perhaps the first real "plein air" piece I've worked on in years.
I must say, it's a good idea to work monochromatically when you're faced with a bazillion* little pieces of information. Especially a monochromatic medium that is easily correctable.
*bazillion is apparently not a made-up word, or this spell-check is more forgiving than I thought.
I'll have the Walnut Ink out at the shop on Tuesday July 19th from 4-5:30 if you are in the area and want to stop in and try your hand at it. Gorgeous stuff.
