Underwood # 5

This is the first after a long time:

Watercolor on Favini 180lbs artist paper painted with Winsor & Newton artist's paints. 13 x 10 inches.

This is a typewriter, the glorius Underwood model Number 5, a museum piece and one of the most appreciated ever.

I love those old objects that also if not very easy to use bring back memories and feelings.

Excellent, Lore! Heavy metal, built to last...definitely not portable.

My Dad used to repair them, I can remember all the rolls, type, keys and ribbons stashed in his print cabinet.

Lore it's stunning how fast you have learned this medium. I've never seen anything like it. You are truly a Whiz Kid if there ever was one.

And it's a terrific painting too! I've got an antique typewriter, I should try painting its portrait--this is very inspiring.

p.s. I can hardly wait to see what you are doing with watercolor in just a few years!

Lore, as I said somewhere else? I think your blog, but I'll say it here too! I LOVE THIS, you have done a fantastic job, and well you know how much I love still life. And your right, it does bring back memories!

Hey by the way, I've never heard of FAvini paper, do you like it? Where can I get it, and what is it comparable to?
