fem-shepard-courage-thmb Here are some paintings I did today in between oil paintings.

Sumi/watercolor combos are a nice breathing time in between intense oil sessions. My oil style and sumi/water combo style is totally different. I’m thinking of a way to merge them and bring them together.  Continue Reading →

I just realized I really really enjoy the inking process using the sumi ink. Fast and rough, even better. True, many times lines end up too strong or too weak, not even straight, but that’s all part of fun. :)
