Here's another one of my favorite subjects, penguins. This was done with sumi-e ink, brush, and Chinese watercolors.

These guys seem to be having a lot of fun. With the hot temperatures we're experiencing here, I'm ready to join them!

This sunset was done with sumi-e ink and Chinese Watercolors.

It was done in my journal and the ink really buckled the paper. Hopefully, if I try this again, it will be on rice paper.

A little flower painting I did using Chinese Watercolors and Chinese brushes.
This was done in my journal and not on rice paper, so the effect isn't the same. I'm just trying to use up my journal so I can start a watercolor journal.

Another attempt using the Pentel Pocket Brush pen. Our monthly theme on Kate Johnson's alumni group is for the month of June, honoring Dad.
My Dad used to do a lot of fly fishing before he owned his own restaurant. I never learned how to use the fly rod, but did my share of hooking fish with a spin rod and cane pole! My dad passed away over 30 years ago. This is in tribute to him.
