Two More

We've had some fantastic weather this fall. Tomorrow's supposed to be sunny and in the 80's. Today it was in the low 70's but very windy. I tried out the Moleskine for the first one. The second is in the Arches sketchbook. I have a hard time with the Moleskine. The paper just doesn't accept the water like I want it to. I guess I have to adjust my approach when I use it.

Bob the Cyclist

While painting the farm scene in the previous post, Bob stopped by on his bike. He stayed and chatted for a while. He is a lover of life, having cycled from Florida to Michigan while in his 70's. I guess this was a smaller trip for him... Elyria to Valley City. Pretty amazing if you ask me. I told him I was going to paint his picture and gave him my web address. Hopefully he'll see this. Hi Bob!

Sunday Sketches

These were done today while my middle son was golfing. While I was sketching the farm scene, I met Bob the cyclist. More on that on the next post. These were done in a 7" x 9 1/4" Arches cold press wirebound sketchbook.
