Original Art from my show at the Artisan Gallery!

If you're interested in anything you see here, just let me know.  Much of it is still available.

And NO idea why I never published this post, I just found it in the draft folder!  Oh well...for the most part, it still applies...

The original of this one found a good home in California, but I DO have prints!

Many of these originals, as well as prints of several of these paintings (and more) are in my Etsy store...it's here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/CathyJohnsonArt

Hard at Work on My Newest Mini-class, Ink & Wash!

Here's a sneak preview...it should be up sometime this week!

This will be the sign-up button on my web page...

There's a video demonstrating this one...

You can get by with only a few colors...

We look at various ways to pre-tint pages...

A beautiful fall day at Powell Gardens prompted this demo...

Another demo video...

From my older public Strathmore video, showing colored ink...
A freebie ballpoint pen works just fine...

Water-soluble ink can be FUN and exciting!

Toned paper can give you some interesting effects and even set the mood!

Here's the syllabus!
