The potbelly stove in ink and watercolor


Again, the the gouache painting is too leaden. I’m going to move on from the Zorn palette to something a little brighter. I haven’t decided what colors I’ll be using.

Today I punched away wildly at my Daniel Smith Ultimate Mixing palette and the colors were okay until I painted the little flower pot on top of the stove. That Cerrulean Blue Chromium it a little too wild, but I approve of the rest of the picture. Pen and ink really floats my boat.

The squiggly lines show that there’s a complaining jaybird inside that stove.

Could use a shadow under the stove…that’s that voice of my inner critic talking to me. What a pest that guy is. All he ever does is bitch and moan.
