Diane (pencil and gouache 9x6)

Snow scenes in Smyrna/Lavergne Tennessee

Two local snow scenes in Smyrna/Lavergne from yesterday afternoon. I sketched it then painted at home from memory. Good practice. Surprising how detail you can remember and then you do a bit of improvising which is a good thing. (gouache both 5x7)

St Augustine Sailboats (gouache 9x6)

Some cool sail boats in St. Augustine from my sketchbook. The sketchbook is CACHET by Daler Rowney. The paper looks like brown shipping paper. I like to paint gouache studies on it like this one.

Haley's Grove Baptist Church in Crab Orchard TN (watercolor sketchbook)

This is Haley's Grove Baptist Church in Crab Orchard Tennessee on rainy 
November morning. I figured it would make a good snow scene subject so I did 
a little bitty sketch. Maybe I will work it over to the oils.
