Summer 2019

August 9, 2019

Watercolor paintings and sketches are some of my favorite ways to practice art. This spring and summer I've been busy doing just that. The drawings below are a selection of some of the work in my sketchbooks. I've been trying hard to sketch and paint a little more loosely. I think when I tighten up my work, it never really achieves the level of photorealism, because deep down I think that you might as well just take a picture.

To get good sketches, I like to get out and about. Traveling the back roads and urban side streets can provide subject matter. I like barns, especially old barns, so I sketch and paint them. Here are a few of my recent sketches.
