Today in the Studio May 22, 2018

My first “urban” sketch of the summer. This is the Rec Centre boat launch sketched from the Safeway docks. Love my new summer hours. I’m open when I’m at the studio and closed when I’m not. That frees me up to take advantage of beautiful weather and get out painting and sketching.

This is the start of a painting I’m doing from a book called “Fine Art Tips with Lori McNee”. The artist whose demo I’m copying is Robert Moore. I’m picking up lots of tips for painting the Boreal from Robert’s demo. He shows his reference photo which is similar to the cluttered forest we get around here. Such fun!
