Roses, Marlborough Buildings

Roses in Marlborough Buildings Allotments are the initial dip ink drawings to be painted later this week. The pen I use is a piece of bamboo that I whittled in Australia when I first began drawing outside using inks. One of the benefits to using dip ink pens is the opportunity they allow for mistakes to occur (the act of making a happy mistake is called serendipity) such as ink drops or ink trickles.

Nice Luke, very nice. I went out and got some ink, different colors. I'm trying them out but with a paint brush. I love your roses and like that word, serendipity. That would really apply to me.:D Take care.

Hi Luke,
I'm always anxious to see your work. I just visited a gallery this past weekend where I was able to see various artists working with different painting techniques. I was impressed and of course, my digi cam battery was dead so I didn't get any photos but I plan to visit again next weekend.

I think the Cowboy work is wonderful!

Deanna :D
