Last week's On-The-Go Ink and Wash Sketches (see my booklet on the right sidebar)

These were done on my vacation last week in the Monterey/Carmel area. Each one took from 15 to 30 minutes to sketch with a Sharpie ultra fine tip pen, Tombow art pen, and the fantastic Niji Waterbrush. Can you hear the seagulls?

These are lovely David! You have achieved a great tonal range.

These are just so beautiful, David. Who needs color when a piece tells stories as these do? I so love your ink wash pieces and they always inspire me. One of these days I'm going to give it a whirl. (When I get up some more nerve.)

You know that I love your black and white sketches. These are great again.

Sue, Spot on!...I love tones in simple black and white. Tones do most of the work but color gets all the credit!!

David Lobenberg said...

Hi, Autumn. Just do it!

David Lobenberg said...

Susan, It is a fantastic way to spend a vacation, and working with these few simple items doubles the pleasure for me!

Beautiful sketches -- what a lesson in lines, tones and values for the rest of us:)
