Pen & Ink + Watercolor = Orchids

“Orchids” is a perfect example of how Janet’s pen & ink drawings evolve.

  1. Each piece begins as a pencil sketch–the details mapped out and drawn with¬†pinpoint perfection.
  2. Then pen and ink is added to the pencil drawing.
  3. With this black-and-white base, she can add watercolor or colored pencil to create drama and style. Often she will add watercolor at the request of the one who commissions the piece.
  4. Using various watercolors or colored pencil, each piece becomes its own unique composition.

Please enjoy a visual demonstration of how Janet’s pen & ink drawings evolve.
