Last Tuesday, not yesterday but Tuesday of last week, we painted at the House of Refuge on Hutchinson Island, a narrow strip of land called Gilbert’s Bar. It was a nice breezy day and I decided to paint the beach instead of the buildings. The limestone rocks alone are an interesting subject. Even though I had time for a second small painting I still painted the rocks and ocean instead of the buildings. So here are mama and baby paintings from last Tuesday.
Met some friendly beach walkers and one dog that was mostly interested in digging to China.
This is a walnut ink drawing/painting of my friends antique buddha called “The Scholar” – also an appropriate submission for the “Illustration Friday” topic of “old”. He’s a wooden carving and as I understand it they were found in Buddhist Temples. The walnut ink is fun to draw and paint with. It’s also easy to wash out areas that you might want to change. Definitely will be doing more with the walnut ink. 🙂
