Pen and Wash

Summer days lately have been filled with tons of activities from gardening to exercising to trips and grandchildren - all delightful and fun, but resulting in limited time at the art table.

I've been using this spirit of summer to return to some quick pen and washes - enjoying the freedom I feel working on small, informal pieces that can later serve as inspiration for larger works.

These hibiscus were inspired by those in my garden ...

Have a great week!

Oh this is so lovely, soft and summery, and beautifully done. I love the mix of pen & ink with the watercolor washes. Perfect!! So glad you had this inspiration for me to drool over!!
