A ton of washes with multiple hues form the major color for this still life of fruits in a bowl. The sketch is applied first in pencil. Washes are painted onto the entire painting. Then I use Sharpies to add more definition to complete the image. Ink and watercolor.

I finally completed the last of three paintings as part of my " fling with swamps". I posted my first painting, titled Colorful Swamp, on May 4, 2009. Another swamp painting which is the sister to this one was posted on December 15, 2011. All three are on a wall in our guest bedroom and make a nice graphic display. In this painting, there is limited space for boats but tons of beauty with a hint of danger for the unknown. Ink and watercolor.
