Urban Sketching at the SCS Farmer’s Market

It was a beautiful morning at the Farmer’s Market in St Clair Shores. After a few warm up sketches, I settled on the petting zoo for my final watercolor on 9 x 12 inch watercolor paper.

I set up my chair on the far corner of the pen, where I thought I’d be out of the way of the crowds. These goats, and a few sheep, decided I was a curiosity. Goats come, people follow. The kids feed the kids and I have my choice of subjects as children, adults and animals move about in front of me.

Home from the Holy Lands

Sketch journal entry, St Jerome

I’m home from my tour of the holy lands. I didn’t get the chance to complete my sketch journal. We were constantly on the move! So I’ll be working on finishing it using the photos from my trip as a guide. The dates on the sketches won’t be when they were sketched, but instead, when the images were captured. Here is a sketch of the statue of St Jerome. St Jerome is best known for his translation of the Bible into Latin.
