Can You Find All the Media?

Above: Quick sketch on Strathmore 500 Series Mixed Media paper (an 11 x 14 inch journal, so this is about 11 inches wide at the bottom of a page—which doesn't fit on my scanner). Click on the image to view the enlargement.

(Listed in order)

Pentel Aquash brush pen with light black ink.

Schmincke Gouache with a 1/2 inch flat.

Montana Marker with shock pink ink. (I discovered in April that I love pink.)

A little bit of touch up with more gouache.

Pentel Pocket brush pen (for final contrast at nose and eye because I didn't have my regular colors to mix blacks on my palette).

I really enjoy sketching on this paper.

    Love this. Reminds me of an old friend. I too love working on Strathmore 500. gouache is just so creamy on it! Ink so smooth.

    Does this look like Lucky? Is that who you mean? It’s actually a big, big male dog, part coon hound and something square-jawed.

    I’m glad you like it. I love this paper too. In fact, as I sit here writing about papers I am reminded how much I love this paper, and how it’s made me almost not miss some of the now defunct papers I loved so well in the past. That is a lot for any paper to do, especially a white sheet when I am so in love with toned sheets.

    Back to typing—see you at the Fair. I’m bringing that cold press Fluid watercolor paper.
