Paint Markers

paint markers with
Winsor Newton
permanent pigment markers
for detail. The later are meant to be
floated on a non-porous
surface, which the
Liq.' pens create on paper.

The bottom image is on mounted watercolor paper.
The suns are on Raymar boards; 6 x 8 inches.

KEY WEST has many banyan trees. They're very sculptural: twisting broad trunks with expansive roots and pendant air-roots.
This oil painting (in progress) has a rough-textured background (palette knife) with roots and leaves laid over using stencils I cut from Strathmore bristol paper.

Since the texture of the board is rough, the stencils can be wiped and flipped for variations
without adding too much unintended paint littering the surface.

My contribution to the traveling mural of 6 x 6 inch canvases.
"DOGGIE BAR" is alkyd oil on canvas and is a more permanent
rendition of the paper signs I hang over studio's sidewalk dish.
