Mountain Sketch – Karen Winters Daily Painting

“Mountain Sketch”
approx 8.5 x 11 watercolor

Well, I’m in countdown mode again – looking forward to the Sierra Madre Art Fair benefitting Friends of the Sierra Madre Library in (where else?) beautiful Sierra Madre, California, just a bit northeast of Pasadena.

So I’ll be posting some smaller sketches and paintings this week as I get my framing completed and gather together other items for sale.

This sketchbook study was painted with watercolor first – then the ink was added. It’s a little different from the way I usually work, but my objective was to think about color and shape more than line – hence the “reverse” order.

    Karen, I love this sketch. I also did a series of these small watercolor and ink sketches when I am in the mountains of Colorado. I was also known to overuse the pen part. Yours is a great balance. I do not have any on my blog or website, but they make great cards, which you can print on your computer with some of the card programs. The cards can sell between $3.00 and $5.00. So you don’t have to sell the original and can keep on making money from it. Just a thought that I thought I would share. Keep up the good work you are an inspiration to me and I love to see The Creative Journey emails in my box.
