Waiting For Diane



I arranged to meet a friend in Tesco Cafe in March last week and arrived a little early. Just beside the car park sits this view, so I found an opening in the hedge and sat on the dry ground soaking up the rare sunshine while I sketched.

I used a Lamy Safari fountain pen with a medium sized nib filled with Noodlers Walnut ink.
I added a little watercolour later back at home.

I sure like how you handled all that's going on in such a place---that color ink is so pleasing to see--I must try it---you've inspired me to do it at least once. I just love the look of this extra special one Winna

Very delicate and pretty. It reminds me a bit of the colored older Winnie the Pooh illustrations.

This is gorgeous! The brown ink with the earth colors are perfect. I love the reflection of the sky - just right in the composition.

The pen lines give this a nice richness with the added watercolor. I need to be able to more work like this...just grab the moment and create!
