Sketching time – Florence, Oregon

Sketch of Boats in Florence, Oregon

While I am out of town, I try and sketch a little. Here are a couple of the drawings I was able to get done today.  Might try and do a painting of the boats. It was so interesting seeing all of the fishing boats on the Siuslaw River as I came into town yesterday.  It was a downpour and they were all out there in their rain gear, so many boats it looked like a waterway traffic jam.  They are fishing mostly for salmon and some trout.

This drawing was done from a coffee shop in the old section of town.

Sketch for its own sake

I’ve take a few days off from painting but I’m still sketching.  It is a joy to sketch for its own sake.  So much of my drawing these days are plans for paintings so it is nice just to have fun with a scene that may never see paint! 

I’ll be back painting by Friday.

Okay, it was one of those rare sunny, warmish February days in Oregon and I played hookey and went outside.   I painted for much of the day, but didn’t finish my painting.  I thought you might enjoy the drawing I did two days ago of a wonderful model with whom I work  on an ongoing basis. 

As always, thank you for visiting!

I thought you might be interested in the sketch for this painting (below).  It was about my third sketch before I finally got the figures in the composition that I liked.  I didn’t faithfully reproduce the image onto the canvas, deciding to simplify and change some things as the painting progressed.

Daily “Drawing” in McMinnville, Oregon

drawing_Oct_3“Drawing from Window of McMennamins”
by Carolee Clark

I am at the Watercolor Society of Oregon show and conference this weekend in McMinnville, Oregon.

Although I did do a “daily painting” today, I don’t want to post it until I get home Monday because I don’t trust the colors on this computer to be true to the painting.  So instead, I will post one of the drawings I did as I had lunch at the McMennamins Pub in downtown McMinnville.

Cheers!

Thank you to everyone who came to see me at the Clothesline Sale, and especially to those of you who purchased my work!  It was a very successful day for me, I didn’t stop talking to those who stopped by and I sold a lot of artwork.  Thank you!

 I love to see dogs with their people.  They are always so happy, so eager and pleased to be on a walk.  This puppy was okay with waiting until his person had rested enough, but he sure had energy and desire to continue!

Does an artist have enough of these moments?  I know that I don’t.  This looks so nice, a quiet moment, to sit, to think, to enjoy the silence.

 It doesn’t have to be grama!  I remember having a phone like this when I was a teenager, and spending hours using it to talk with friends.  Now they are retro … you can buy them fitted to be a cell phone.

Quick sketch of Phoebe

This quick study was done last night.  She is an amazing model with extraordinary long, wavy hair, great lips, beautiful eyes and a small, upturned nose.  It would be a rare night I would leave early when Phoebe is modelling. 

This is ink on mat board because I ran out of paper.
