Summer Challenge#6 and #7

These are the last two sketches of my summer challenge.They were completed in my Mead sketch book with Pilot ink pen and Faber Castell water color pencils.I used my reference photos from our trip to the small city of Decorah,Iowa.It is a charming little city with preserved old buildings,art galleries and cute gift and antique shops down town.In the first sketch you can see an interesting building downtown Decorah and in the second a couple of musicians singing for some kind of charity at the Farmers' Market.

Summer Challenge#4 and #5

These are my next ones from my summer challenge in water media.Both sketches are done in my Mead sketch book,size 6x9.The first one is completed with ink pen Pilot and watercolor pencils and the second one with ink pen and light watercolor washes.I like the ink pen pilot for its bleeding features when disturbed with water.It gives more character to the drawing.

The new challenge

I started a new challenge.It is a part of the Water Media forum at Wet Canvas.They started a challenge called 100 Days of Summer.The participants promise to complete a certain amount of works in water media during this summer.Everybody decides for her self how many works she would like to complete.My goal is to complete between 30 and 50 works,paintings and sketches.Here are the first three ones painted with watercolors and watercolor pencils.
