fantastic-crafts said: May I ask a question about your process? I'm wondering if you begin with ink drawing or with watercolor? I'm a huge fan. HUGE!

Thank you so much! Your comment has made my day.

Lately, I have been making a light sketch with watercolor pencil. I go over that with a drafting pen. Then I build color with a series of watercolor layers. Last, I add bold, black lines with an ink brush pen. Here’s a gif to illustrate the process.

Today was Cumberland County’s Artists Day hosted by the Mauricetown, NJ Historical Society. I painted a lovely, corner home plein air until the rain drove me under a tent. There I sketched a hot dog stand.
