More Sketching

Watercolor Painting, Haight

Brian Bailey, Haight, Watercolor, 7″ x 5″, © 2015

I spent more time sketching in the Haight-Ashbury district this week.  I’m still working on getting loose and understanding how to work with watercolor.  Mindfulness and letting go seem to be the biggest parts of making images that feel authentic to me. I’m feeling good about where my work is heading and I’ll be posting more in the coming weeks.  Thank you for your comments and encouragement.

  1. Wow. “working on getting loose and understanding how to work with watercolor”…..Um, I think you’ve got it. Your work is always a pleasure to view. I’m glad you continue to share it with us. This is lovely. I love the very very fine pen line you used to accent this piece. Micron .005 or something else? Well done, Brian!

    • Thank you! I’ve been drawing with a speedball pen, one with the different metal tips that you dip into ink. I hadn’t used one extensively before but I really like the variety of line quality you can get from them.

      • Wow, Brian, where did you get it? I know nothing about these pens, but it sounds interesting. How do you get the line so fine if you’re actually dipping into the ink? That’s pretty incredible. Great job!
