I started a new painting Friday and got a major amount of work done on it over the weekend, but I don't have any pictures of it yet. In the meantime, here's an old sketch.

Baby Studies

I hit the jackpot today--dozens of little children running around for me to draw. Glad I went.

A little blond girl that was running around asking everyone what their name was. At least that's what it sounded like she as saying.

A little girl that was standing outside with her mama.

A really beautiful, happy baby at a table near me. The only time she frowned was when she dropped her teething ring.

I had some free time last Wednesday afternoon, so I got the chance to hang around the cafe and draw. Here's a businessman I sketched.

Margaret Again

Got a good amount of work done on this over the past few days.

Thursday, November 10, 2005


Between yesterday and today, I got a good amount of work done on Margaret. I really hated to quit this afternoon, but I have other things to do (sadly).

November Show

Portrait of Katie (2" x 3")

Katie, Deep In Thought (3" x 4")

My two miniature Katies were juried into this month's all media show at the Art League. You can see them on the wall in the Art League's gallery inside the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria, Virginia.

A New Painting

Here's a picture of the one I'm working on now. It only has about eight hours of work on it, and it's almost a full sheet, so it'll take longer to finish than the others. The model is a natural redhead.

The first Megan is finally done.

Cafe & Campus Center Sketches

Some sketches I did of people in the coffee house and of people playing pool in the Campus Center.

An employee at Panera.

Kid playing pool.

Another kid playing pool.

Studies of some women that were in Panera that day.

The pool sketches were the hardest to get; the players moved around too fast. They move so fast that I can't draw that many lines, so I have to use a brush pen. If I just use a regular pen, the sketch comes out looking bare.

More Paintings

Here's some more of the Katies. These were all done in the spring and summer.

This one's a full sheet (30"x22").

And this one's a quarter sheet.

A Couple More Paintings...

...and then it's quits for the day. I got around to photographing stuff just like I said I would, even though I didn't get to a few sketches that I wanted to. I'll hold off on posting the sketches for now. Here's the first Katie

and the last Katie.

The first one's a full sheet of 300lb cold press paper (30"x22"). The second one is a quarter sheet.

More Watercolors

Katie, Looking Down. 17" x 22". My favorite of all the Katies.

Megan, Step-by-Step

Well, more like day-by-day. This painting is finished now (more or less), but it needs to be flattened, so I haven't taken the final photograph yet. It took about two weeks.

An old sketch...

... from 2004. This was on the beach at the Outer Banks (NC). Done with a micron pen on 140lb. cold press watercolor paper.
