A baby Elephant in pen & ink

This dear little baby elephant with all his baby wrinkles just needed to be drawn in pen and ink. They are so sweet and vulnerable these tiny babies elephants!

I washed him in watercolor then added  water-soluble pen work to his wrinkles.  I then  washed over the pen again, to  make the blue color you see here.  I was quite pleased with the way he turned out.
This was painted for the Wet Canvas Animal & Wildlife, September Challenge

Flowers & a Camel

A Camel painted in PanPastels and some pen & Ink added.
I thought I'd like to try the combination of mediums, and it worked quite well.
The Camel was painted for Wet Canvas, Animal & Wildlife May Challenge




Calla Lilies in watercolor and Inktense pencils.  I loved the bright pink color of these lilies.

Watercolour & pen painting

A watercolour and pen painting.  I haven't used pens with watercolor for a very long time, so discovered that most of my pens had dried up except one, which turned out to be water-soluble!  So I had fun trying to mop up the blurrs and runs into my watercolor!  But now I've got used to this pen, I might try more watercolor & pen paintings with it, as it's quite fun.


Bright tulip
