Pen and Ink

 Still working on these- top one is my garden gate in pen and ink and the second is at another garden with watercolor added and the pen and ink is very light.

New Envelopes

 Sorry, photo turned.  Working with gold ink was nice!  I feel the lettering came out pretty good.

Little Red Schoolhouse

 Almost forgot to include my photo of the Schoolhouse for the previous post!
  The other picture was a house that would be fun to paint but the wild flowers were too high.  Had to hold my camera way up in the air to get this.

Little Red Schoolhouse

 Path at the Little Red Schoolhouse.  What a wonderful place to take kids and its all free.  They have a new building but the old one was closed for renovation.  It will be nice to have that still open as it was there when I was young and visited with the girl scouts!

Our last plein aire class met at the Little Red Schoolhouse -had to have our critique at a nearby forest preserve.  The weather was ideal and even cool in the shade that day.  We always luck out with the weather! I should have taken more photos of all the wonderful work, done in pencil, watercolor and pen and ink.
