"Did you know that Lupines belong in the family of Legumes. They seeds are a common snack, especially in the middle east and a very nutritious, high in protein"
How I create my watercolor & ink paintings: "I first do most of the ink work. I do not pre draw anything. I go straight to work with various dipping pens, bamboo pen, and brushes and dipping ink. The objective is to be loose and painterly. After establishing the ink lines I use watercolor to create shadow and light and vibrant colors, I work in layers. There is no erasing whatsoever, so everything even inks droplets that may fall are part of the art. Incidentals like ink drops are some of my favorite parts. Finally I add more ink lines to enhance certain areas in the painting. I then sign in ink and voila!"
Here is a quick example of my painting technique. Different painting but same approach.
