Ink and Watercolor

Vision

The four pictures on this page are drawings using ink and watercolors. I am fascinated by mixing my media to achieve different effects. Although I also enjoy painting with oils and acrylics, I occasionally get in the mood to experiment with the tiny details that can be achieved using fine ink pens and subtly filling in color with watercolors. Due to my late husband's obsession with all things Egyptian (being a history professor), I became fascinated with drawing Egyptian statues. The use of ink to achieve the deep crevices, cracks and shadows in the ancient stones gives tremendous dimension to the drawing. The fourth drawing is of one of our local desert petroglyphs, again using ink and watercolors.
