Last week I did a few test wet-in-wet pages to see how the colors blend together. This week I selected one to use as the background for an ink sketch. I did a few pencil sketches on the facing page to help me determine the shape and positioning for the sketch. The line of text refers to T. S. Elliott's poem "
Belle likes to sit next to me (or in my lap if she can) as I type on the computer or sketch and paint. She likes to chase the cursor on the screen, or my brush tip as I paint. She does her best to add some adventure to what she must see as boring. Not nearly as interesting as chasing bugs or lizards or scaring birds off the feeders!
