I bought some new colored pencils on sale at Office Depot, Staedlers. Nice colors and lots of pigment. It's a warm sunny day down here in Florida so I sketched my view from under our awning!

Nice drawing, Brian.  Good practice to do the things around you.

I love Staedler pigment pens for my line and wash paintings.  Nice quality.

This is getting addictive!


I also tried pen and ink for the first time

Then I colored it in with my Prismacolor pencils!

I've been having so much fun lately.

Brian,

These are fabulous!!!!

Your pen and ink car is the BOMB!  I love it colorized, too.

I'm sure it is great entertainment in the campground to watch you do this.

Brian, I have just got back from a two week vacation in Kissimmee, Florida where the weather was outstanding although they are have a terrible drought.  I have just seen your drawings which are outstanding to say the least. I love your pen and ink one and amazing how colour can bring a drawing to "life".  Beautiful work.

This is great  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Patricia... I had to look where Kissimme was located.  Happy you had a nice time, and hope they will get some rain soon.  It is either drought or flood... 
Cheers, Annie
