    Hen street Houses

    A peaceful day down on Hen St.
    Another Painting 1st done abstractly in watercolor pencil on watercolor paper and scanned in. Image actually only 3" x 3" approx. Once in AR then I had fun adding a few things and tweaking here and there. Fun! You should try wc pencils. Convenient, inexpensive and quite easy to use. check'm out.

    I love this new direction of Your style with pencils on watercolor. Absolutely charming and artistically rich to be fantastically useful for many genres!

    Thanks Gary, Caesar, Katie and Sandy!
    I bought the pencils at Staples. A set of 12 prismacolor. They are about $15.
    At first I bought a cheap set of Michaels "Artist's Loft" brand but these were worthless. The prismacolors are great.
    For water I just use a brush pen that has water in it and you squeeze it to get it wet and then paint away. Completely portable! A regular brush and a little water would work too.

    Strongly visible compositional/designed quality to this one.
