October 9th 2009

I was playing around with ink and watercolour this morning and realized that it had been a few days since I posted my last "What I Wore Today" painting.

Today I wanted to try something new, so I painted the background colour with watercolour, then went over everything with ink and a quill pen. (I don't think I've used a quill since I was a student, so that was a challenge).

I'm working on a new painting that I'm excited about. I'll post a link to my portfolio when I'm finished it. That may be after the Thanksgiving weekend, because we'll be out of town. I'm looking forward to meeting more of Chris' family, and having dinner at a vineyard. I won't be going home for a Thanksgiving dinner, which is sad, but we'll be going to Chris' Dad's dinner, which is always delicious!
