More drawing with my watercolor crayons…for this piece I used warm and cool versions of the primary colors and wound up with a warm patchwork of earthtones.

Primary Colors Study 1

Primary Colors Study 1

When I saw the results I immediately thought of the hills, trees and rocky ravines in southern Indiana. I have sanguine and sepia drawing pens so I decided to do an ink drawing over my study. Indiana is a state that has very flat farm country in the north and hills and deep ravines in the south. During the last ice age a glacier stopped its southern movement in the southern part of the state. This (again) is on my 5″ X 7″ Liquid paper.

    Study 1 could be “Cabbage”, yet you artfully made it into what really does look like our state’s limestone ravines – very clever!

    I’m from the flat part of Indiana but appreciate this southern part of our State and the parks with areas such as the above. Wonderful mixed media, Linda.

      Thank you Leslie! I really enjoy going to Clifty Falls and Spring Mill State Parks. Indiana has areas that are really beautiful.

      Thank you Richard. This year I hope to do more of this by using watercolor to do negative painting.
