Spring? Bring it! – watercolors

sketchtimeClick on image to zoom

These are several fast ink and watercolor sketches that I’ve recently finished just trying to bring Spring to southern Indiana.

The bottom left is a non-Spring related ink sketch, but is an old retro style Sci-Fi scene. With an astronaut hoping they know that he comes in peace, not realizing what behind him, does not!

The other three are a familiar scene from the southern Indiana area. The Spring rains have begun, and the snow has all but melted away, that’s not to say that we might get more next week. Last week we received 8.5″ of snow and temps were in the single digits farenheit, this week, almost 70 degrees. As we would say around here “If you don’t like the weather today, wait till tomorrow, it will completely be different.”

These are 5″ x 7″ on 140 cold press watercolor paper.

Thanks for viewing and I hope flowers are blooming where-ever you live.

  4. I love your sketch of the dogwood. It is one of my favorites to draw or paint. Very delicate.
