A Little Ink

From Life / 8.30.17 / 5×7 ink “Side of Carol’s Garage”

On the last Wednesday in August, we met at Carol’s house. I couldn’t get my painting mojo together, so I took a sketchbook and some ink pens. Carol had these wonderful old green bottles with plants in them sitting on the table. I tried to sketch each one using just one line of ink. I think I’ve heard this called “wire” drawing, or the “single-line sketch.”

Then I sketched her art bag, and easel and palette. After that I did the side of her garage that I could see through her french doors. If I were brave, I’d tint these with watercolor.
