Taken from a quick sketch I did in Exeter NH along the Swazy Parkway downtown.
Actually just before I added the final glazes and popped it into a frame not sure if I will show it or not.
Here is a bad photo and it is not in the right Mat or Frame but just to show you I finished it.
Too much of the painting covered and lousy photo
I have decided since the theft the best way to sell my watercolors for now is as a signed and numbered Giclee print. I will make some of my original pieces available in runs of just 250.
So my shop on Etsy is open with the first 5 being offered. FolsomMillStudio
Now that the printing process has been completed by a local couple and I can offer exact images for my art I feel so much better. I am offering them for $35 each.
I am working each day on my space here mowing, weeding, planting and dreaming of what is to come. My knee pain is just about gone with this new diet so slow and steady I will work to get strong again.
You poor people with fires pushing you out we seem to be getting your rain and trust me we do not need it. Some of our local fire fighters have been sent to help so yes we all know about you being in harms way. We are so sorry please stay safe.
Yes I finally signed up to learn how to draw again. Taking classes with a great artist at the same gallery where I try to enter the monthly Theme Shows.
I know my problem with a pen I hurry too much! I am excited to learn but scared at times to fail but really who am I actually failing as you already know I am screwy and unique lol trucking, photography, watercolor now drawing it is all who I am time to embrace me and let go.
You can laugh when you take a gander of these first attempts as I know I do but the journey to a better painting will keep me laughing, practicing and practicing some more.
These are done blind well the hand and binoculars and the other students I did fast and blind to start then we moved on to grid work now I can see the possibilities ahead.
Pen to paper look at object and draw never look down to see what you are doing.
My poor teacher done by me FAST SKETCHING and I mean fast! 30 seconds to get then down on paper or really their essence. They were all female but in mine they appeared to be men 😦 try and try again.
Another Blind Drawing I did here at home for homework
Worked on Bob Dylan using a grid but drawing it while it was upside down.
