This is the last of my 2.5 x 3.5 pen & washes that I did for the WetCanvas ATC exchange. It was done from one of my own photos taken in Venice. The windows are so often adorned with flower boxes, and laundry hanging is a very common sight there.
I have always participated in the visual arts including watercolors, drawing and sketching, pen and ink, and photography. Since retiring from teaching I have devoted much of my time to watercolors, sometimes combining them with pen and ink or collage.
Watercolor is the perfect medium to capture the beauty that surrounds us. I love to travel, and sketch and paint wherever I go. Painting, especially on location, captures the spirit and life of the subject. I hope to continue doing that for a long time to come.
