These were done while I was at the recent Ontario Meet. The first two were done at The Briars, a resort in Jackson's Point. The octagonal building is called the Peacock House and the tower is Peacock Tower. The third was a little doodle in the garden at the Whispering Pines, our B&B.

Oh Patty thanks for sharing! I've been avidly watching the photos of that meet and waiting to see the work pour in! I recognized the scenery right away. What fun you all had, and I really admire your ability to draw! Nice work!

Thanks! We really had a good time!
I think the secret to a good sketch is not to try to draw every detail. Sometimes just a suggestion with a line or two is enough.

Nice. Very nice and pretty, and well done.

Patty, These are lovely!!! They have just the right amount of detail and beautiful color too. I like the pen & wc. It seems to capture the best of both worlds. Very nice!!

Lovely work Patty, so delicate.
You mean I don't have to draw everything? ;)

Doug, Ha Ha!! You keep on going like you are, I love your stuff and your attention to detail! I don't have your patience! Thanks for the nice comments. Have you caught up on your sleep yet?

Oh you're just showing off now :evil: :p - how did you manage to do THREE - I only did one......lol.
I looked on the website about that house as I couldn't remember what it was called and it says that little house is the Coaching House - oh well what ever it is called you did a wonderful painting of it.

Oh really? I thought someone told me it was the Peacock house! LOL Oh well...
Thanks so much!

Patty, What paper do you do your pen/ink w/ wash on? I usually use Bristol board. Just wondering. They are soooooo nice and appealing.
07-04-2007, 11:15 PM
All of them are marvelous! The Pines certainly looks like a nice restful place...
07-06-2007, 01:26 PM
i love love love that first one...wish i could have been there to paint with you guys!
07-06-2007, 02:55 PM
very cool indeed! Patty, how big are they? I will try the pen and wc one day looks like fun.

Natalie, these were done in a Montval Aquarelle 140 lb 9 x 12" sketch book. I haven't done any on bristol board, but I have used hot pressed paper and liked it very much!
Kim, I wish you could have been there too!
stlkicn, they are about 6" x 9" each. And it is a lot of fun, you'll really like it!

These are beautiful, Patty! I think the first is my favourite, but all three are impressive plein airs!
07-07-2007, 09:32 AM
Thanks so much Ruth!

07-07-2007, 03:19 PM
:thumbsup: These are great, Patty. Fun to see what caught your eye in the garden at the Whispering Pines. It WAS lovely to sit out under those trees!
07-08-2007, 11:00 AM
Abigail, I'm happy to have inspired you! Thanks
Jen, there was so much that I could have painted at the Pines! This was what was right in front of me! LOL Thanks!

Wow....Personally,I'd have to say you have found your style.....these are so totally pen and ink.....
Your drawing skills are faultless.
I really like all three.....with the only nit being the toppled birdhouse (too dead on?)
Your hard work sure is paying off....Good on you.
07-08-2007, 06:23 PM
Wow, Brian!! Thanks so much!
LOL about the toppled birdhouse...my only excuse is I was too tired to move to another spot!
07-08-2007, 09:01 PM
Patty...all of these are lovely and delicate! I wish I had been able to come paint that day.
07-09-2007, 09:01 AM
Absolutely delightful and sooo good Patty!!
07-09-2007, 09:06 AM

Beverly, wish you could have been there too! Maybe next time, eh? Thanks for the nice comments!
Thanks so much Uschi!
Friesen, that combo is really growing on me too!
