View from World Mark

Finally, the sun is out - and the view from our condo is amazing!  The sunrise woke me up and I inked and painted before the others were up.  I left my India ink pen in another bag so I'm using my favorite fountain pen for the initial sketch. I tried not to get into it too much with the water afterwards, because I didn't want the ink bleeding into the gouache.  This is the first time I've used gouache on this extra rough cotton paper - and it worked well.  I don't realize how heavy and rough this paper is until I return to it from the soft, buttery papers. I do love to try them all!  Painting number 1899 in 1899 days.
