" Laura's garden "

                           8  x  11   pencil, tombow pen, watercolor

This is the piece done with the local San Diego Sketchcrawl get together, we meet at Laura's house which was a feast for the eyes. We then ate lunch together and passed around our drawing pads. Good company and good artists makes for a fun time.

What a fun day, and lovely sketch, Dominique. You're lucky to have a group to paint/sketch with. I love Tombow brush pens--gonna break mine out! Is this on bristol or wc paper? Liz

Adebanji, You would off love this house. Thanks for your comment.



Liz, thanks , I did. I have to credit Adebanji for introducing me to Tombow pens. It's in my regular sketch pad Cachet - Daler & Rowney. It's all full of waves now, oh well..

Great Palm tree action, it's like I never left Mexico. Laura's got a great garden. Beautiful drawing.

dominique eichi said...

Stephen, actually I was thinking of the other palm I did I have a blog called dancing strokes for sketches like that and it's at the top of this one in a vignette to see. But this one was nice too.

Gary Keimig said...

Very nice work. I really like the way you are using pen and ink associated with other mediums. Nice feel and it just looks like you are having fun doing them.
God bless and keep it up

Cathy Gatland said...

Sounds like a wonderful day, and you produced a beautiful drawing - the light and shade, and hard and soft edges and lines are quite lyrical.

dominique eichi said...

Thank you Cathy. How nice to come by we did have fun.

Mona said...

Dominique, don't laugh, but this painting reminds me of "Night of the Iguana"! Did you ever see that movie?
It's a very atmospheric painting, nicely done.

dominique eichi said...

Mona, ah hah hahahah it's still funny, No I didn't see that movie if it's a horror one I don't watch them. but I can imagine the feel with the iguanas. Thank you the place did have a great feel to it. : )
