Welcome! Hope you see some artwork that pleases you, if not now, maybe next time…

Stuck sketches.

It is a dark and rainy day here in France. We are “stuck” in front of the fireplace, with books and music, some red wine….and ink.

The piano…..unipen # 5, splattering with ink-pot lid, moleskine


Cloches, a crystal and a branch…………unipen, brush-pen, splattering with brushpen, moleskine.


Pens and nibs….uni-pen, brush-pen, speedball pen and nibs, splattering with nib(C1), moleskine

    Well good for you – this weather has inspired me to dive into my novel and not come out! You seem to be getting more and more comfortable with straight line work – it’s lovely.

  3. As the last leaves fall from the trees and the weather colors everything steel gray, these beautiful ink drawings of yours become richer in their sparness. They look so relaxed!

    Loving these pen and ink sketches you’ve been doing. and I have to say, “stuck” where you are certainly looks more interesting than “stuck” where we are.

  9. Gosh, these are fabulous! And I , on the other side of the Atlantic, am having the same inky fun as you! Now, we just need to get together and spread ink all around the same room ;D. (My studio updo should be finished in a week or so, so come on over!)

  10. So good, Ronell! I especially like the piano drawing; it seems as if the sketch were full of music with all the splatters; nice work!
