From a series on garden perennials
Sketching expression is important to me. I think this one succeeded. More often I miss the mark. Guess that is the price paid for sticking with art through thick and thin.
Another pencil and watercolor sketch of a local architectural feature.
Another in details of local buildings
Colored pencil sketch on 8.5 x 11 paper. This is one of a series done in 2005 of architectural details of buildings.
Another journal page. Focus on what I saw during a hike up and down a local mountain. Summer then.
Quick sketch--pen and India ink.
Watercolor 2003-4. Patience, good temperament, civility, humility, love describes my grandmother's life--born in the late 1800s, she faced more difficulties in life than I have ever faced. This painting represents longing to return to her.
This little book had several tiny squares/rectangles per page. At first I didn't know how to fill it (2017). Eventually I sketched trees, scenes, birds, animals I'd seen during a days walk. It accidentally became a diary of seasons! Not all my art is nature sketching, I'm a watercolor artist as well. But line and pen drawing, halftone is what I've been up to for a while.
Another journal page. Sketches of people getting out and about around town and at hiking areas.
Quick sketch practice. Always trying to capture the structure but keep expression.
Spotted these two squirrels while out walking during spring 2018. The highly entertaining pair were exceptionally easy to photograph. NOTE: I'm working on how to make a better digital image of my artwork. Will get there--sorry for the gray background.
Another page from my drawing journal. I sketch based on photos taken of people, places, things, doings--often same day.
Activity at the river. Day in the life...sketching journal
