Watercolor sketch

Did this quick sketch while family was visiting.

sketchy app

While the family was  visiting for Easter, I discovered the sketchy app, so there is no rhyme or reason.  Just fun, still checking for spelling errors.

Gull Haven

Gull Haven Golf course.  I did this study in gouache  in 2014.  I am actually typing on my samsung keyboard.  It doesn't have spell check on my blog.  I am not the worlds greatest speller.  How can I fix this problem, anyone. If  someone knows how to get the spell check to work on the blog, please help.  Thank you.

Pen and ink study.

Started my day with pen and ink, and sketch an wash study.  Later I did a watercolor sketch of the same scene.  Haven't really done anything big or even in oils.  But this type of study is also very important.  With the coming Easter Holiday and my grandchildren's visit almost upon us thought it would be best to keep it simple. Happy Painting everyone.

Port Jefferson

                                                               Port Jefferson wc sketch
Yesterday, Mike, Mo and I went  to Port Jefferson.  I did a little sketching and took photos.  This is just a wc sketch .  Instead of doing oil sketches on location, perhaps this is a better way to go about first studies for a possible oil.  Happy Painting everyone.

Still life using the fracturing technique

Today I did a little experiment, using the fracturing technique on a 3x4 mini canvas.  It is very abstract and not completed.  Want the paint to set a bit and I will continue later. Happy Painting everyone.

A closer look at my 6x8 oil on canvas panel that was started at Port Jeff Harbor.  Could not belive the wonderful spring like weather.  High 60's.  It was delightful. Happy Painting everyone.
Painted plein air with friends at Port Jeff. It was a beautiful day at the harbor.
my 6x8 oil sketch, I am using the palette knife more often, still learning. Hapy Painting everyone.
