Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils ... true love

Both of these illustrations were done with ink and Inktense on fabric. The first one here is Sweet Lorraine . She's in my etsy shop now as a print .
I didn't make her into a pillow .
On Sunday nights there is a radio show out of Fordham University on Long Island .
It's called the Big Broadcast and they play songs from the twenties and thirties .
Rudy Vallee sang Sweet Loraine , and Nat King Cole. I wrote the lyrics on the back of the print and if you want you can read them in my Etsy shop .
The second photo is of the pillow I made today .
This is Bunnie with her bunny [ sold ] ,
I drew this with ink on a denim fabric .
Did I ever tell you I love Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cat Inktense .... pillow etsy ....

okay who knew.... people like cats !

My cat pillows are selling well on Etsy

then I colored on [ lightly ] sky blue Inktense . Then use a little water to even it out .
Then Indigo , water, then violet , then some willow , then some bark .
always using a little water between all the different colors . That's it !

Under the bed

Do you remember how I wrote that I have drawings EVERYWHERE ...
even under the bed .
You thought I was kidding ,
but I really found this today ,
under the bed in a an old suitcase.

I drew this ...[ the top drawing ]
May 8 , 1975.
uh ..... 33 years ago
but I count my life in pounds
but I won't tell you how many pounds ago this was .
SO .... I thought this old drawing was sort of cool ....
so I did another [second drawing ] with Inktense pencils
I sort of like it .
Do you like it as 'unfinished' ???
I'll still mess around with this I think.
I wonder what else is under the bed .
Happy ....... TUESDAY !
