Sands Willets House Line Sketches

Sands Willets House Line Sketching
This type of sketching requires that you start out with a simple shape and build out from there. This is good practice for making shapes which is very important for the planning of a painting. Another form of sketching that I teach in my drawing and painting classes.

Sands Willets House Sketches

Sands Willets House Sketches
Tonight's effort. Capturing the light is what plein air painting is all about.
I will have a painting demonstration at the Dodge House Spring Fling
at the end of May. Come out and watch me paint and sign up for a class or two.
You will see how I transform my sketches into paintings using
a simple approach. I will also have paintings available for purchase at
an affordable price. Part of the proceeds will go towards the 
Cow Neck Peninsula Historic Society for the upkeep and 
renovations of the Sands Willets House and Dodge House.
