Peaceful Wandering


A chopstick & India ink created the lines. Because my hand has less control than with a manufactured marker the lines flow of their own accord & I am more of a witness than the creator. The colors, Winsor Blue, Phthalo Turquoise, Alizaron Crimson, Hooker's Green, & a touch of Naples Yellow are also linear, made by a #10 sable brush. The scene is one I revisit often. It brings me peace.

  3. What even made you think of a chopstick?
    I get the reasoning!
    I have India ink..but in compact form..hmm..maybe a liquid ..I must check..
    In all your work I love the lines and paint.
    Peace..sometimes hard to attain..magical the places and moments.
