Having a little fun

I’ve been traveling and working long hours lately, but managed to steal some time to goof around. I had some fun with watercolor and pen & ink.

A friend has a dog that is a natural clown; here is a simple, quick watercolor from a photograph.

This dog is a natural clown

It’s been a long while since I did a direct ink sketch (no pencil drawing, just ink to paper). It has a nice immediacy. This was done from a photograph (but I wasn’t trying to be faithful to the photo; I has just having some fun with features and shading). Montblanc Toffee Brown ink on watercolor paper, 140lb cold press Caslon.

Uh oh.
