Inspirations and sketches from my studio in the Catskill Mountain. The solitude of my Artist Retreat compels me to keep exploring, seeing, experimenting, and painting all the picturesque quality outside my window.

SNOWY GARDEN BENCH SKETCH
A tranquil little scene after a snowfall.
I like to start my drawing on tone paper, so I can use the sepia tone as my middle value.
After a simple outline of the bench, I draw & shape the bench with a kneaded eraser. I use 8B graphite to work in the darker values. Touches of white oil paint to indicate the snow.
Beauty in a little drawing, sometimes, it's that simple. "The world is full of magic" WB Yeats
