Winter Creek

It is so relaxing to paint to the sound of trickling water.  This winding creek is always so inspiring, and I am painting small today. Choosing ink and watercolor, I sketch on 3x3 handmade paper.  Even though it is January, the green is coming up in the water.  I'm ignoring it - since this is the only month where I can paint dark water without the slight algae all year long!  The square composition is fun, too. I like the depth I can achieve with that twist of creek in the background.  This fountain pen is my TWSBI Eco in rose gold and white, and I use a medium nib for the handmade paper.  Love these pens so much!  Painting number 2939 in 2939 days and day 26 of the #stradaeasel challenge.
