tonight's practice

Castro Valley, CA Castro Valley, CA October 29, 2012. Back in July, I sketched the view out the window at Pastor Tegner's house back in July, so I attempted to recreate the scene tonight with some watercolor washes. I prefer the sketch over the watercolor when I see these images, but the watercolor, if framed, would look better hanging on a wall in a dentist's office. It's much softer, and would look much more inviting, especially after waking up from a tooth extraction.

The watercolour brings to mind the work of Thomas Rowlandson. Very nice and far to good for a dentists wall.

Both are great sketches Rob, nice to see the different techniques working so well from the same hand.

Great work! I love your trees! They look so effortless I need to work on that. I too am drawn to the second one

Trees are wonderful to draw, aren't they? I could spend whole days just drawing trees and all their shapes.
