Sumi-E Ink Drawings
Here is what I did last Sunday afternoon.
An elephant (which I sketched from a painting I did for my daughter a few years ago.) This Sumi-e ink drawing is a little different from the painting I did. Here’s the Sumi-e ink drawing of my elephant. It was a quick sketch (that back right leg looks a little skinnier than the rest!) Ha, ha!
And a couple of Cardinal birds. One is puffy from the chilly air.
I was looking in a bird book for this one and did a rough sketch of two different photos. I am planning to do a watercolor of a Cardinal in honor of my mom. She loved them even though we never lived anywhere where they could be found.
And now for a little of bit of self-promotion which I rarely do.
I had the original painting of “Grace’s Elephant” printed on 5×7 cards that I am still selling for $5. I only have a few left. I have not gotten re-prints of any of my cards yet. So I occasionally sell some and have used some to accompany gifts I have given people. The two card prints I am currently out of are the ones titled “Sherri’s Ocean” and “Danny Boy” (the horse.) They were my best sellers besides “Grace’s Elephant.” I still have some of those left, though, because I ordered two dozen of those to begin with. A lot of my daughter’s school friends wanted her elephant a few years ago. 🙂 The other cards I have are of the blue hydrangeas acrylic painting I did, a pink rose painting, and one called George’s Alpenglow.
If you would like to purchase any of my art, I have an art page on Facebook. You may message me on there about anything you may want. I do not have any online payment plan set up, however. I would have to get your address and give you mine to send me a check. Unfortunately, I haven’t figured out how to do all of that yet. I will have a lot more time to do all of this when my daughter graduates from high school in May!!
Anyway, here is the link:
Have a wonderful weekend, and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂
Thank you for reading my blog!!!

Patsy loving the elephant, I just gave my daughter a set of sumi-e inks and brushes can’t wait to see what she does with them.
Thanks Kath! I appreciate that. I need to get back to them. I have my brain going in way too many directions right now! There are some good books on Amazon.com for Sumi-e ink painting. I am sure she will do well! 🙂
