Sheila, very good choice of paper to showcase the white zebras. And cute dog with the pens.
Marriam, ha...what a neat piece of paper to use to do a flower. Very clever. Good colors on the petal. Shiny grapes!!You gave it a good background color too.
Cindy, the petal and the center of the flower is outstanding!
Dave, very good rendering of the portrait but more so, love your contrasts of the waves and rock piece.
Leya, wow....the colors!!! and the detail on the flower. Beautiful!
Doug, very good crop. And love how fine the details are especially its claws and feathers. Good crooked orange slice too.
Les, thank you for the WIP. The background really made the piece pop. The colored jugs look so good!!!
Bruce, you've wowed me again with your stippling. It has such great values even with dots on the fruits. Your zebras look very contented. Love your choice of colors for the run down house. I like how you did the stone wall.
Kathy, very nice interpretation with those lines on your jugs. It looks really good!!! But more, I love your landscape piece of houses. It has such a British feel to it. I can imagine myself as a pen character walking down the slope. Very engrossing!!!
chkabidy, I like your clouds and especially how the equipment stands out in the front! A very illustrative feel to it.
cem, your jugs are so elegant. Didn't think Pitt pen is so versatile.
Eileen, totally love your contour interpretations. It has such a loose but energetic feel to it. I expect the grapes to walk off the drawing soon. I like how you make the back of the wall for the jugs non matching.
Rainy, very dreamy colors for the jug. I like how you did the layout for this painting.
Cashin, wow, very nice lighting on your stone wall barn. And such patience in the grass. Very nice.
Someone asked me what I used for the waves on my seashore piece. I used Deleter manga white ink waterproof version. Not recommended for dip pen even though it was so advertised. Best to use brushes with it. The better dip pen opaque white ink is Dr. Ph Martin Pen White.
Today, I did one zebra on Utrecht Oatmeal Sketchbook - around 2.5 x 3 inch only.
Pentel Calligraphy Pocket brushpen
Prismacolor blue pencil
Derwent 2b watersoluable pencil
Col Erase white
Faber Castel Polychromos gold
I didn't bother to use white ink because it's too laborious. Colored pencil will work for a small piece like this.
