High Seas Original Watercolor & Ink

High Seas
by Michael Squier 

For the love of pirates and pirate ships.  First I drew a pen and ink sketch of a pirate ship sailing along the coast.  Then I used watercolor paints to add color.  It is so important to use a waterproof india ink pen so the lines do not bleed when applying the color.  I mix my watercolors wet into wet right on the paper.  

This 5x7 inch painting is for sale in our Etsy shop.
