“Painting is poetry that is seen and not heard.” Leonardo da Vinci

Ink and watercolor are an elegant and often ideal combination. I love the softness of the watercolor paint and the crisp black of ink. Both mediums respect and support the other’s strengths. The ink pen relieves the watercolor of so much detail duty and the paint is free to just be what it is – a wash of color. The paint color provides a foundation of support for the beauty of line. It also allows a faster work process! At least for me. Today’s schedule didn’t allow for much time on P3, so it turned out to be the perfect solution. And the strawberries were delicious.

This weekend I will be testing out how well the Petite Painting Project travels.
