Derelict and Overgrown


A real beauty, Linda. I especially love the negative painting and your great pen-work!

The negative painting is a real standout, love it Linda.

Lovely Linda, like this a lot

Thanks Mia, Katy and Heather, I wasn't sure how much pen detail to put in with this one, so left it to focus more on the negative.

It excellent Linda, I like hoe the washes have blended , it does not need anything else doing to it.

Very effective, Linda - like the way it fades out.

Great pen work, really nice colors and the negative painting has worked a treat, the subject really lends itself to this Linda, nice one.

Love this Linda especially the negative painting

The negative is excellent as is all of this pen / wash painting.

Great format and I really like the negative painted areas in the trees. I love the vignette finish too

Simple strikes again, and wins. Charming.

Beautiful negative painting and I love the cameo effect Linda.

Just love this, Linda, especially - as others have commented - the negative painting . Your pen and wash work is beautifully done.

The experimenting is definitely paying off.

Thanks Fiona, what I did with this was to paint my sky quite dark then got my brush and took as much water out as I could then made my tree branch marks where I wanted them and then darkened the areas off in between the branches.

Just love this Linda
