Drawing again



I had been working on a couple of watercolor paintings recently, but they weren't going so well, so I've put them aside for now. I decided to simplify my efforts and just do some quick sketches for awhile to loosen up. These are a couple that I did this past week on some very "thirsty" handmade paper that encourages me to be less intense and wield my brush v-e-r-y quickly! These are about 6x9" in a journal I love but haven't used much because of the paper.

You do beautiful work Mary. I wish I could touch your paper, just to see what it is like. I have a "thing" for handmade paper, LOL.

Lovely sketches, Mary....I love the hollyhock but I also love the collage effect in the second pic.
