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.

Corn snakes in a tree. This was just a fun piece, the corn snakes did hot live in a tree, but I planted them on a fungus shelf for fun. May 4, 2012
