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.

My friend and I went out to the Davis Family Farm where the owner kindly allowed us to paint and draw.  I started this painting which I finished in the studio.  They had absolutely gorgeous flower baskets and tons of fresh berries.

Below is my sketch for the painting.

The other day I asked if anyone had some high quality photos that I could use as references for my animal paintings.  I was absolutely thrilled when Katie Johnson generously came through for me with many wonderful photographs from which I could choose.  Check out her blog (click here) to see if you can find this gorgeous little boxer.  Here is another of her blogs.

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.
