Here is a very quick 2-3 minute sketch I did from John Pike's Painting Watercolors project 4, oriental style.

Used Pentel Pocket Brush pen and Yasutomo sumi-e watercolors.

Paper used was a piece of scratch copy paper I use in my printer. This was a quick fun one to do.

This is my contribution to the March "Green" theme on Kate Johnson's Coffeehouse. Couldn't get it uploaded to the regular album nor my album. Tried 3 different days. No go! Oh well, so much for Yahoo!

Just a variety of things done in green.

Wheee, what fun! Just like kids, like to slide down a hill!

Another penguine drawing using Pentel pocket brush pen and Chinese watercolors.

Pandas and Penguins are my 2 favorite animals to paint with the oriental style.

Sentinels of the Night. Done with a new Stabilo CarbOthello water soluble pastel pencils. The initial drawing was just like regular pastels. I blended them with a Q-tip. Instead of fixing it with a fixative, I applied a light wash of water over the entire drawing. Some additional blending came as I applied the water.

A very different medium. Will have to see how much more I can accomplish with wetting the colors more.
