|A colour sketch of the Humber River Valley near my house.|
This sketch was done in a 5"X7" book.
|I will also sketch ordinary everyday things.|
|A quick pencil sketch to determine composition.|
|A sketch of a rural Ontario farm, many of which are slowly|
disappearing from the countryside.
|A more detailed sketch of the Northern wilderness.|
|This sketch was one of many, each was a different|
view of this house that I later painted with watercolour for the owners.
|These last two sketches were done in permanent ink pen|
so I could determine the values of the overal work and the placing of the canoes.
Sketches are not meant to be finished pieces of art but I love the look of sketches and feel that they could be framed and displayed. The fact that they are done quickly gives them a spontaneous feel that appeals to me.
