Sketchbook...

More watercolor/drawings in that large format sketchbook.  The paper is so thick, I need to adjust to the nice paper. I've been working on lightweight paper for years and am feeling spoiled by this new book.  I did order 2 more books to have when I finish with this one.  It's nice to have the same sized "perfect bound" sketchbooks for storage.

Ghost Dance

Drawing for "Ghost".  Hopefully I will be able to translate this onto a stone and combine Smart Plates with Photo litho plates for color.  Processing...

Sometimes I wish I could go back...


Sometimes I make a decision to change a print edition or drawing and I wish that I could go back to the original state.  This is one of those times.  When "less" is "more"... keep it simple ... the vertical to horizontal lines work much better without the color.

Don't Play with Fire...

Having fun with this red to yellow color palette.  It's always about the hair.

Blue drawing...

Purchased a new batch of micron pens.  I love working with the .005 blue.  Accidentally bought a watercolor sketchbook (didn't check the paper).  Meant to purchase the 500 Mixed Media Strathmore book.  So playing around with washes.  I always think accidents happen for a reason.  So far I don't totally dislike the textured paper.

Not sure where she came from.  This floating girdle petticoat woman... those wadded up floating paper pieces are representing"mistakes".

Boo Day...

Having difficulty developing a "ghost" concept. So I started playing with the idea of masks.A side note... I'm going to print 45 prints today (my second color) so I'm conserving my energy until the print session begins... otherwise know as procrastinating.
