    This is a book I would buy. You should have this published!!!

  3. Clare says:

    Yeah, I’ll echo that thought. I’d buy this.

  4. Becky says:

    Ditto, ditto, ditto!! Wonderful, lively drawings!

    Wonderful sketches and watercolors! I’m really amazed that you’re able to portray both animal and vegetable life so well. They can be very different and need almost a different skill, especially in the large vegetative masses such as the little island behind the boat dock.

    And of course, what has been my main question as these sketches have appeared over the last few weeks: Doesn’t that seam down the middle of your notebook drive you nuts?! Obviously not.

    These really are wonderful examples of what great work can come from working from life.

    Thanks all for great comments. Ken, the seam doesn’t bother me- I sort of think it works well with the drawing and lets you know “this is in a sketchbook”. And I like having the extra real estate and not confining the drawing to one side or the other. Give it a try!

    If I do a book, should it be a mystery, a gossipy tell-all, or a jungle bodice-ripper?

    Yet more superb drawings Debbie. I’ve long been a fan, but these take the viewer on a breathtaking journey of pure delight and discovery – lovely, lovely work!!!
    Oh! – definitely the boddice-ripper, please!

  8. Ken Januski says:

    OK, Debby, you’ve convinced me! I’ve ordered a couple of the Moleskin watercolor books. One way or another I’m going to force myself to do more work from life………..

    As far as the book my vote is for a mystery. There was a California author, Rebecca Rothenberg, who wrote about 3 botanical mysteries many years ago which I recall were very good. But I’ve never run across a high quality bird-related mystery.

  9. Great fun to see, Debbie! You’re an inspiration.

    Hi I cant believe this.. it does not look like an art.. looks like photography or printed. You definitely need to publish this.


  16. Brito says:

    Really Cool, where on earth do you get the inspiration from to draw these. CHEERS, Britto.
