From a series on garden perennials
From a series of about eight drawings on bristol board, approx 14 x 18. Pencil and watercolor.
2020, 2021. Pencil on good drawing paper. About 17 x 23. Will be submitting this to a juried show--local and digital. Whether the pic is chosen or not, I had to follow my goal and "git er done."
This is the next redo on tap. It's a watercolor painted in about 2006. Likely I'll only change values of the leaves--the lighter ones. And I will try to define the yellow petunias better.
Last from garden perennial series. Watercolor and pencil.
Micron pen sketches of people outdoors going about their business.
Quick pencil sketch on drawing paper. In town, in my car, drawing passersby on this day. This man was using his main means of transportation.
More watercolor figures. Winter activities February. Bristol board, pencil, watercolors--about 12 x14.
Final days of winter, family, friends on the slopes of a nearby volunteer ski slope.
Watercolor on mixed media paper. Squirrel at stump eating rice and lentils--seemed quite happy for the meal.
Another journal page. Focus on what I saw during a hike up and down a local mountain. Summer then.
Quick sketch watercolor on paper 12x14
View of a treasured town park from access road looking upward.
Another page from my drawing journal. I sketch based on photos taken of people, places, things, doings--often same day.
Quick sketch--pen and India ink.
Pencil on heavy weight paper.
A walk in the park
Starting this past winter I began redoing some of my old artwork. This one was painted about 15 years ago--is quite pale. Soon I'll be brightening it, adding more value contrast. After each redo is done, I choose the next. Anyone else out there do redos? I'd love to hear about your experiences.
Watercolor on watercolor paper. Front door plants. Re-do on original from about 15 years ago.
I love working with this pencil. Although it is like a watercolor pencil, the tone is much more graphite like and it disolves nicely once I start using a brush. Using more or less water creates nice value range. I'm definitely a fan of this pencil--also comes in a medium and dark wash.
Activity at the river. Day in the life...sketching journal
