These sketches are 8"x10", matted and framed to 11"x14". I draw from life or from my own photographs, first creating a pen & ink line drawing. To keep the ink from bleeding when the line drawing is colored with markers, I make an inkjet copy of it first.  I make no more than 25 copies of this sketch and color each one by hand with markers, water colors or pencils. 

Each piece is unique as it is colored individually, in much the same way an etching from its original metal plate is unique. Each 11"x14" framed drawing sells for $85. Prints of any colored piece can also be purchased for $40. Each print is about 5"x7" and is matted and framed to 8"x10".
