Thought I’d give watercolors and ink another try, but this time on a trees.

First painted with watercolors, most of it wet in wet except for the leaves on this first one I then added the ink.

Under the Tree

This one is just watercolors

Autumn Tree

On this tone I practiced using some fall colors.

All are watercolor on 140 lb. watercolor paper.

  1. I really like your pen and ink technique here. You’ve been busy!

    • Busy, yes. I really like working with ink, and now…ink and watercolor. I find it relaxing. I’m glad you like the technique and thanks for the comment, Carol!

  2. That’s quite neat. The ink gives the watercolor a whole different look and feel.

    • Thanks, Binky. Adding the ink was actually a decision I had made when the painting was complete. I’m quite happy with the results. Thanks for commenting, Bink!

  3. This is lovely. I have always liked ink with watercolor. What really captures my interest is the subject. To me it looks like two trees hugging. Very cool, Debbie.

    • Hugging!, Of course they are hugging. Thanks, Leslie, I knew you would have been the one person to notice that in this piece. To me, the one on the left appears to be on the shoulder of the one on the right. Thank you for your lovely comment, Leslie.

    I like both of these ink and watercolour paintings, but I do favour the single tree with its layered foliage as the method that you have chosen, by layering and letting it dry in between applications has worked so well…

    • I like that one too, Andro. I feel as though I evolved a bit when I did the second one. But the first one I’m fond of for the fact is gives a cartoon like appearance to it.
      Thank you for taking the time to comment on these for me, Andro!

      Have a wicked evening ole man 🙂

    I have just been taking a closer look at your first painting and I must admit that the bark and leaves look very good, not cartoony, just a very nice example of two trees, two hugging trees as Leslie puts it 🙂

  6. Awesome! I especially like that first one!
