sketchbook :: pepper picker

This past Saturday morning our farmers' market was a very busy place. I came home with lettuce, tomatoes, corn, apples, two lavender plants, and a few photos. It was so full of shoppers that I was not able to get very close to this glorious display of bell peppers, which was crowded with folks picking out the perfect peppers. I wonder what dish she made with her red and yellow peppers? This was sketched in my Strathmore watercolor journal with pencil, watercolor, and a little white gel pen for the chalkboard signs.

very nice :)

how did the gel pen act when worked on the watercolour?? did it get clogged?

Thanks Polly and Jennifer!
Jennifer, the gel pen does fine. It's one I've had for a few years now that I only occasionally use when I have situations like this. If the watercolor is dry, there are no problems.
