Pen and Wash

Summer days lately have been filled with tons of activities from gardening to exercising to trips and grandchildren - all delightful and fun, but resulting in limited time at the art table.

I've been using this spirit of summer to return to some quick pen and washes - enjoying the freedom I feel working on small, informal pieces that can later serve as inspiration for larger works.

These hibiscus were inspired by those in my garden ...

Have a great week!

  1. This is beautiful!! Love it. So colorful, yet soft.

  2. Lovely, Lin! Great combination of mediums...

  3. Dear Lin - love this pen and wash. As always your art is outstanding. Take care and have a great week.

  4. Thank you all so much. It's been too-long a time since I've done any ink and wash and I am so glad to return to it .. thank you, Kate, for the first class I ever took in pen and wash -- I still enjoy the fruits of that class .. and have also taken up my journaling again --- so thank you for that too!

    1. Lin, I'm delighted to hear you're back to journaling AND ink and watercolor. We'll look forward to seeing what you're doing!

  5. So bright and luminous. It describes the flowers so beautifully.
