Current Ink & Watercolor – Mixed Media Art
My mixed media inked artwork lends itself product illustrations, tattoo designs, drawings of buildings & portraits of people or pets.
I’ve been experimenting with using it for portraits recently. First I draw the piece out in pencil. Then I go over it with a series of different size pens. I especially like the extra fine point for the very light hatching. After that, the entire thing is painted over with a mix of watercolor paint and some ink. It looks like it might be possible to get the black and white version printed and then I could hand-color those prints for a more personal gift.
Vintage Pen and Ink Art
I was living in Lake City, Minnesota when I created the inked artwork that is displayed below. The first few images are of a rustic cabin nestled in the woods up north (northern Minnesota). The next two images feature the Lake City Hall before renovations we done to it in 2001. I think it’s a nice way to remember that old architecture. After that are a couple of houseboat images. The houseboat ink painting was based on a craft that was moored in the Red Wing Marina. Lastly, the band called BackLash from Lake City had me do their inked caricature drawing.
