Monday oysters

I turned in week 4 grades and now on to the week 5, the week of hands and feet. The week my students have all been dreading.

I found a great used Gertrude Stein book called GS in words and pictures with lots of photos of her salon in Paris. I bought myself some oysters on the half shell yesterday to celebrate getting paid after life drawing hours of India inky fun with a bamboo pen. I did not use any watercolors on the ink drawings yet. I'm trying a 2 step process - I draw in the ink in the drawing session, then later far away from local color do the watercolor layer to open the process to other influences.
