Graveyard Pen and Inks

Today was gorgeous out and I enjoyed working in the graveyard with my mini-Fridas (for those of you who don’t know, Frida is my most trusted and faithful model–my skeleton.  She’s about 5 feet tall, and I’ll be taking her to the old first church graveyard,too, but I need a little help on that since I don’t drive.  So, I got out my trusty “townie” cart and shlepped my little Fridas, dressed to model for the first sketches for this year’s Los Dias De Los Muertos paintings.

I spent a lot of time today giving directions to Robert Frost’s grave.

Each of these paintings is made with reed pen, brushes and inks on Canson and Arche watercolor papers, 1 hot pressed and 2 cold.  9.5″ x 12″, 10″x 15″, 10″ x 18″
