Sketchbook Side Trip
Thumbnail sketches at the Carlisle Conservation Land also known as Great Brook Park... on the border of Lincoln and Carlisle, MA.
I did this sketch the afternoon after I went to the John Singer Sargent exhibit at the MFA. HIS architectural watercolors were SO realistic and magnificent, I made myself sit for longer than usual attempting to draw the tower on the Billerica Library. A triangle or T-square might have helped! The actual tower does not seem in imminent danger of collapse.
I made softie pumpkins for friends for Halloween.
More thumbnails from photographs and/or imagination in preparation for pastel class.
The faces below left were done in pencil from newspaper photographs.
Below right are more thumbnails: searching for simple but interesting shapes.
