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.

SKETCHING A HORSE WITH GRAPHITE
This started out as a quick sketch. Sometimes, a drawing can just suck me in.
Tools of the trade: I start with a general shape of the horse; tissue to rub in the graphite; kneaded eraser takes out the white & just perfect for highlights.
Then it's back & forth with 8B graphite to define the features & shadows!
