Pen and Ink and Pencil Work

This week I've been working on drawings, getting ready for next week when I'll be away at a painting retreat.  I'm posting two, the first is pen and ink which probably won't become a painting next week but may one day become a print.  The second one will probably become a painting because I've had a request for some full sheet size boats.  It's pencil in my sketch book which is where I usually do the initial drawing for my paintings.  The sketch is square; however, I'll add more of the surroundings to make it a full sheet.

The first piece was for the Wet Canvas Weekend Drawing Event.  Here are a couple more from that event that are not likely to be anything more than these sketches but they were fun.

I'm also working on a few more of the flea market series and should have those ready to post next week when I return from my retreat.

A painting retreat sounds blissful. Helen, I should have been over before to say I've passed on the 'Kreativ Award' to you in appreciation of your lovely work. Don't feel obliged to do anything about it, unless you want to (I think I'm about out of '7 things' now!), but there you go - awarded!
