This week, now that I’m back using my fingers again, we have a quick ‘n’ sloppy semi-watercolor that follows in the footsteps of last week’s tree doodle.

This time, using spent watercolor pens and Winsor Newton inks on paper for pens (with a lot of tissue blotting and smudging for effect), I added color to the mix and painted some trees, from my imagination. It’s a bit of a cheat, using the lack of detail to give the illusion of movement.  I like the way it looks, but it’s basically still a limbering-up exercise. I am trying to capture atmospheric perspective better as I go along, but this isn’t exactly a gallery piece.

As usual, I did a little color-correction and cropping after scanning it, but there were no digital touch-ups.

It is nice to be making physical art again.

You can hear two classic episodes of the show Sunday at 2 PM. All times listed are Eastern, so if you’re in another timezone, adjust accordingly.

Tonight at 9 PM for the Monday Marathon We bring you ten hours of Mel Larch’s Curtain Call. The Tony Awards are Sunday, so we’re bringing you a marathon of Tony shows from the past, kicking off with this year’s nominations show.  On Sunday, instead of running our weekly marathon of Mel’s musical theatre show opposite the Tonys, we will move it to 9 AM, and wrap it up by 6 PM, in time for fans to watch all the pre-show Tony Awards coverage on streaming services. Then from 6 PM to Midnight, we’ll bring you a bonus marathon of Mel’s Disco show, MIRRORBALL.
