Farmer's Market

This is a watercolor sketch I did at the Cherry Creek Farmer's Market. It was done quickly, with a simple pen sketch and watercolor washes. While I was working a woman with two Siberian dogs sat down next to me. One of the dogs immediately sprawled across my feet. Good thing I like dogs, because it was hot already and to have a thick-furred Siberian covering my feet just raised the temperature even more!

Eggplant Studies

Here are three versions of eggplant drawings. The first is graphite on Strathmore 500 plate. The second is carbon dust on bristol vellum. The third is carbon dust on Clayboard. This series was really about trying out carbon dust techniques and comparing it to the graphite drawing. I really enjoy working in carbon dust and I have many more drawings planned and started.
