These remind me so much of Van Gogh's depictions of the working class poor that he painted early on. I love the limited palette you're using on them.

Nina, these are so cool. The colors you pick certainly depict the mood of the painting and the lifestyle of the worker.

I haven't been to your blog in a long time. Everything you have up is so beautiful!

That's INK use. I proofread up to the last couple of words, I guess. I bought some Noodler's ink last year, but it's still in California and I will wait until November to try some brushwork with it. June
