Datebook and Sketchbook...oooooo...
As promised, my unfinished watercolor from Door County. I just applied paint to the page without doing a base sketch, and I think it really shows. I'm pleased with what I dabbed on the page, however, and it brings the scene quite clearly back to mind.
While I was flipping the pages of the sketchbook, I ran across these taped-in figure drawings. I'd grabbed a small stack of copy paper and a charcoal one evening and went to town drawing from the tv. There was a whole lot of really awful stuff on the pages when I finished, but these were a few of the better bits. It was nice to be able to hack them out of the muck and get rid of the really bad stuff.
