BONJOUR!!!

Lucky me.  Just come back from a visit to Paris and Normandy.  Highlight was a visit to Monet's Garden.  It has been a dream of mine to visit there.  I wasn't disappointed. We picked a really good time of year to go.  And, of course, I just had to do a quick sketch while there.

Drawn in green water soluble pen.  Quick sketch but the memory will last forever!


Me in action.  Very small notebook in hand and soaking up the atmosphere while sketching.

  6. Polly, check out a youtube.com video by Karlyn Holman and the calligraphy pen, the Elegant Writer. She explains how she uses it and how to make the ink turn permanent.
