Beach Rose watercolor version

In my last post I showed the reduction print version of "Beach Roses". This one is made using the black final layer of the block, with the addition of watercolor. The colors are a bit brighter, which I like, but it loses some the details and depth of the original.

Beach Roses

This is a new print I made recently to sell at the Portsmouth Open Market at Strawberry Banke. I ended up printing 6 layers---yellow, light green, pale pink, deep pink, dark green, and black. I am also doing another version of this print where I only print the black layer and paint the colors in with watercolor.

I hope some of you will be able to visit Vita and I at our booth this Sunday, July 24th. We'll be there from 10-4pm.

"Gesture drawing"

This week's topic for Illustration Friday is "gesture", so I thought I'd go with the idea of a drawing class where students are warming up with gesture drawings of their model.

Illustration Friday "Stay"

"Can't we stay longer!"
We headed off to the beach on an absolutely gorgeous day this past week. The water was about 60 degrees, so it was bearable for the occasional dip. I usually don't find myself full-out swimming until August when the ocean gets a little warmer. We stayed all day, and in spite of a few missed sunscreen spots, and an empty cooler, we weren't in any hurry to leave.
