A Visible Voice is the blog of artist and poet Linda H. Feinberg formerly of Manchester, New Hampshire, now in Boise, Idaho. Prints and cards may be purchased at my website store: http://www.lindafeinberg.com
I didn't feel like painting the other day. I did a little illustration from one of my Idaho photos. This is the old steam boiler we saw in Idaho City. I used a Sakura Pigma pen for the outlines and Caran D'Ache watersoluble crayons for the color on Bristol Smooth paper. Originally I was just going to sketch a little, but then I decided to put some color on the sketch. If you are playing with these crayons, it would be better to use hot or cold press watercolor paper. Since I only used a little water, the paper did not buckle. This was a fun project and a nice change from my attempts at landscape painting.
