Crab Cove: The Gift That Keeps on Giving


Crab Cove
9" x 12" ink and watercolor
Arches 100% hot press

I've done this one before, but thought I would revisit it while in a Sailor pen inking mood. I swear I'll be trying to represent trees for the rest of my life without really know what I'm doing. But I like this tree, I have to say. And I like what happened to the colors in the background. Because hot press paper is smooth, the paint can sit on top of it, puddling and blending (or not) in surprising ways.

And how very lucky I am that this tree (pretty sure it's a coastal live oak) and the SF Bay are in my backyard. This is my everyday view when I take my walks, and it's just a block from my home. 

Speaking of which, time for the afternoon perambulation.
