watercolors, watercolor pencils and graphite in stillman and birn 'gamma' ~ 4" x 6"
wow, november is really marching along - the 15th already?! many cloudy/snowy/rainy days here lately, which is fabulous for all of the plant life but not much for picture taking... zipped outside before coffee yesterday to snap these. some of this week's pages in my daily book.
i looked in this book to get ideas for the flowers. i got it a few years ago in the bargain section at barnes and noble. it looks like it's out of print now, but a fabulous book if you want to buy one used. while at amazon looking to see if it was still available, i saw
the the art of instruction: vintage educational charts from the 19th and 20th centuries - good heavens! i think need it!
watercolors, watercolor pencils, graphite, and uni-ball white and gold gel pens
watercolors, watercolor pencils, gouache, and graphite
pogo print pages from last week's walk... getting in last visits with tree friends before winter...
and from yesterday... out wandering to see how two snows and several rains have changed things. i was getting ready to cross the creek and visit the green shrine tree here...
