802 Main Street

Often times I will get an ink drawing done on site only to add watercolor later.  I have started to use not only the India ink beforehand, but also the soluble ink, moving that ink with a little water before adding color.  I've only tried it twice, but like the results so far.  I can completely establish my values before adding color.  In this case, I used my favorite black, but I wonder how my favorite brown would work?  Perhaps I even have a loaded fountain pen in my larger sketch bag.  I'll be spending most of my hours with my dad in the hospital, so this is a great time for a little exploration bedside.  What better therapy is there?  Painting number 2091 in 2091 days.
