Works on Paper (Sketches and Drawings)

Another New Work on Paper: Octopus’s Garden

“Octopus’s Garden” | Watercolor on heavy Raffine sketch paper | 6″ x 5.75″ | © 2013 Marilyn Fenn -- Here's another new one this week continuing in the sort of hippie theme. :) I feel like I'm on a roll, and it feels great!

New Work on Paper: Woolgathering

"Woolgathering" | Watercolor media on heavy Raffine sketch paper | 5.75" x 6" | © 2013 Marilyn Fenn -- I had a lot of fun with this one. Stayed up all night working on it, and then worked on it some more. It's surprising how long these little paintings take, but also quite enjoyable.

New Work on Paper: The Caterpillar’s Lair

"The Caterpillar's Lair" | Watercolor media on heavy Raffine sketch paper | 6" x 5.75" | © 2013 Marilyn Fenn -- Here is another small work on paper. A bit fanciful, plus I was introducing a dark background, which is a bit unusual for my work. Just trying stuff. :)

New Work on Paper: Hippie Nouveau

"Hippie Nouveau" | Ink and watercolor pencils on heavy Raffine sketch paper | 6" x 6" | © 2013 Marilyn Fenn -- So far this year, I've been working on some small studies for larger works. I may post the studies when the larger works are done, but that could be awhile. In the meantime, here is a small watercolor pencil painting on paper I did the other day. I started from the point of continuing my thoughts/impressions of Bontecou, but decided to aim for a simpler design and a slightly subdued (for me) palette. I love how this piece turned out!
