Pine Study 05 - ink on paper 18x12

In this study, I added a pine cone - something I haven't done for years.  It's like renewing old friendships.

The color balance on this photo is a little too blue/green.  There is a storm coming and the light was not good.  I'll retake this later if it seems appropriate.

Palm Study III, IV

Palm Study IV
Ink and Watercolor of Hosho, 9.5x12

Palm Study III
Ink and Watercolor on Hosho - 9.5x12
I added color to an ink study of two palm trees and the scrub cedars on the marsh. Study was done quickly for effect not detail. I like the effect, so I signed and dated the pieces.

Palms on the Marsh II

Ink on Hosho - 12x9.5

This sketch / impression is of a grove of palm trees and scrub cedar that can be seen in the distance from the service road beneath the Beach Boulevard ICW bridge. The stateliness and solidarity of these palms was what attracted my attention.

I did another quick study of palm trees from near our house on the salt marsh. Image is with sepia acrylic ink on sumi paper.
I have signed this piece, which means I think it's good enough to hang.

Palm Tree Study

Ink on Sumi Paper - 11x16

Here is a quick study using India ink on Sumi paper. I usually put these aside, but I like the form and presentation of this one.
