Rodeo Shrimp


One morning during my college years in Texas, (Professor Emeritus) Fred Klatt ate a Tic-Tac just before class. I was able to get close enough to hear him critiquing a drawing with a fellow student, ".......lines and arcs have definitive beginnings and definitive ends. On the other hand, scratches, like those you show me, just have the middle part."
Pen and marker sketches

Love the line work. Your lines have definite beginnings and ends! Much sensitivity and character make for very interesting lines.

Try some watercolor with this style instead of the marker and see where that takes you. Nice work and I love the concept of the group.

Thanks Marilyn udabom! Do you apply color or linework first to watercolor? Or does it matter? black marker and watercolor might be interesting?
