a refreshing touch…

September 7, 2009

of paint to a pen & ink.  Thankfully, the new printer allows me to print archival inks onto watercolor paper and paint on it without incurring any smudges.  I like this…a lot.  In fact, it’s got the wheels turning a bit.  Sometimes it’s good to breath new life into an old technique.

    I enjoy your architecture drawings so much. I’m not an artist but I’m curious about your method: Is it pen and ink -> scan -> print with archival ink -> watercolor?

    • Thanks for stopping by Terry! You got the order just right! Of course, I always do a pencil sketch first, so that I know exactly where to place each line when I start the ink version.
