Often when doing a watercolor, I first sketch with a warm grey Faber-Castell PITT artist pen, which is permanent Indian ink.
Rusted Out Chevy scanned once home.
A cactus garden, using cattle troughs and old red oil drums, was along the driveway-facing side of the house.
So much fun to get messy with my Neocolor crayons!
My last drawing before leaving the desert was in the guestbook. A quick ink sketch--a view from inside with cactus close to the house, rocks in the mid-distance, and mountains beyond.
Good-bye to the desert.
