Caroline Street, Houston, TX – Ink on paper, 10″ x 8″
Contemporary realism, landscape, cityscape

If the truth be known, my first love is ink. I fell in love with technical pens when I first met them. I do love croquil and Speedball pens but using them means taking a chance they will leak a big blob of ink on your precious drawing. I use them, but sparingly. I get more control with technical pens without the stress. Pure drawing pleasure. This is a house on Caroline Street in Houston. It’s in one of my favorite areas of Houston – near Hermann Park.
