Venezia by Fabriano

These sketches are all in my new 9x12 Venezia Sketchbooks. the paper is wonderful for ink and takes watercolor washes very well
I am inspired by the techniques in one of my favorite art books Watercolor without Boundaries by Karlyn Holman. all the drawings I plan on will be cityscapes, or landscapes, many from photos I took while on a trip to the UK and France. There will also be sketches from photo refs around the world shared by my Wetcanvas art friends.

Down on the Forest Floor

This is far too busy I think, but it is the next page in my book.  I poured on some permanent rose, quin gold and antwerp blue, let it dry then inkied in the forest floor, (photo ref by mginsberg from wetcanvas) I added more color, but could not retrieve the whites of the paper (it is only 90 lb after all) so touched it up with gouache, something I never do.
