More for Hennie's pocket

The first is called "At the Black Canyon of the Gunnison" and is made with Christmas markers. It is 8 x 10, on watercolor paper, and I am going to put the original in the pocket. The second is gouache--I was just fooling around testing the transparency/opacity of the gouache. But I made it too big so I am putting in a print.

Hey Mary, I'm loving the top image - reminds me of when I was at the Grand Canyon!

Thanks, Steve. I've never been tot he Grand Canyon, But the Black Canyon of the Gunnison in Colorado is very impressive.

(--the lower one was just fooling around.)

I love both of these. I wish you had my book already, so I'd get the original works!

The top one is so realistic, but I love the bottom one because it shows your color palette on the side. It's as pretty as the painted flowers, maybe prettier :-)

Ho ho, wait a minute... I think I know where you got those markers, don't I?

You ARE going to get the original of the Black canyon of the Gunnison--as I carefully cut the paper small enough that it will hopefully fit in the pocket.

YUP, you know where I got those markers--and thanks! :-D
