Alcohol Inks - Part V

Here are two more small tiles I did with the alcohol inks. I put cork on the backs of the tiles to keep them from scratching things. I dropped off several of the tiles at a shop in the next town for her to sell during the holidays. She wants me to give a class and already has someone interested in taking it. lol

These are actually square tiles but I have to crop them because there is such a shine on the edges when I take photos of them.

Alcohol Inks - Part IV

This tile is a bit larger...6 x 6. It is fun to see how the alcohol inks react each time.

My Tuesday morning group had Jeff for a model this week. This was the painting that I spent most of my time doing.

I finished early enough to do a quick sketch too.

This is one of the spots in Sayville that I return to often to sketch. I'm glad there are still some boats that haven't been shrink-wrapped.

Clouds Over the Bay

We had lots of clouds the other day so I went down by the bay to check them out and paint. This location in by the Great South Bay in West Sayville.

Alcohol Inks - Part III

I have still been working on a few alcohol ink tiles. They are different from doing watercolors and I'm enjoying seeing the results. These have been dropped off at a local store, and I'm hoping to get a few more done to have at my plein air group's show on Dec. 10 & 11.

Ink Sketch

The other day I didn't have much time to sketch but I wanted to get something done. I sat in a parking lot to sketch the church across the street. This was done directly in ink.
