This is my latest painting:
I just seem to have a thing about sheep and single trees in an open landscape. I don't think this is necessarily my best work, but it is my favorite because of the scene.
Now you have a task to do. A week or so ago I posted this watercolor painting of a farmhouse:
But many people have been telling me that they like my paintings done with pen and ink. So I decided to do the same painting in pen and ink to compare the two. Here is the 2nd painting:
I'm not sure it's a fair comparison, because the pen and ink does come out so much more clearly when it is scanned. But though I perhaps like the looks of the second one better, the first one gave me more satisfaction to do -- and incidentally took much longer. But even in the second one you see my urge to put in more and more detail. I had to stop myself.
I'd be interested to hear any comments or suggestions. I want to learn.
