Definitely not yucky - I like the pumpkins for the richness of the colours and the pencil mug for its sketchy quality. The pen work goes well with the gouache.

Thank you Sonia :)

Yep, I seem to like to add the ink with the gouache. I was trying to fight that the past few weeks, but I really like the look..so I ain't fighting no more.

Thanks Andy and Meisie. :)

I like blue/orange complements... not everyone does, however.

Judy, 'so nice to see these here as well, so I get to comment again! I love the ink too. Glad you're not giving that up. ;)

Do you do a Dutch Thanksgiving too? :D

Do you do a Dutch Thanksgiving too? :D
Jamie Well yes, I do an "American Thanksgiving in Holland" with 90% Dutch ingredients (the mini-marshmallows and pure vanilla come from the US .. lol ). I also get my cranberries from Friesland - they're grown there, cool huh?. So I guess that makes it a "Dutch" Thanksgiving Day ("Dankgevendag" :lol: :lol: ). It's not a holiday here, of course, so no day off for the Dutch family, but they get to eat ... lots & lots!! :smug: :smug: And there is soccer (voetbal) on TV , so I guess that subs for all the football games in the states...hahaha!!

I also do the feasts on Christmas Day and Tweede Kerstdag (2nd Christmas Day) and I make the traditional Dutch Oliebollen on New Years Eve....
... uhh, if not in my studio, you can find me in my tiny kitchen. :p

Shall I reserve you a place, Jamie? Will that be two or three for dinner? :D :D

Oliebollen? :eek: I'll be there for New Year's....I'll bring the fireworks ;)

Why are you fighting the ink? I love it! I've seen it tight and controlled and loose and expressive like yours are. Don't fight what feels right for ya!!

Why are you fighting the ink? Oh, I suppose it never hurts to question myself...or fight with myself... LOL helps me to understand myself (not always easy to do).
