Quick Sketches December 23rd 2019

Here are some Quick Sketches I did in September, October, and November 2019. I managed to do a few watercolour paintings in this time, as well as sketches from photos.

I did not do much drawing outside in this time since it was getting colder. I did however do 2 sketches outside in October. One was of a Dogwood Bush, and a Leaf Pile.

Near the end of November, I did 2 quick sketches of Quebec City from some of my old pictures from 2015. I really like how they turned out, and think they give a good impression of the city.

  1. I’ve always liked your sketches, Shawn, and these are particularly nice, filled with charm and warm nuance of expression. I’ve only just recently begun re- experimenting (since the late 80s) w/acrylics, esp in terms of washes – the tech side has advanced so much I’m hoping I can capture some of what watercolors offer, and that I see in some your “spontaneous” almost Tiffany glass pieces here. All the best, and Happy Holidays! 😊
