Colored Pencil Study

Colored Pencil Nov 2008 14" by 17"
I find that I like to work on the design with pencils first, then complete a color study with colored pencil before I start to paint. The layering of color with the colored pencils was fun

"Storage Shed"
Watercolor 11"by 15" on 140lb cold press paper October 2008
Completed this in October 2008, I had started it in September but Hurricane Ike slowed my work down. I am learning or relearning how to work with water color. I am not happy with the trees and realize I need to complete some studies of trees.

Must Have Coffee Pencil Drawing 10/2008 11' BY 14"80lb paper
This is a pencil drawing of a toy coffee grinder my great Aunt had when I was small. I remember playing with it and grinding up soda crackers. I included a copper french press and one of my favorite coffee cups.
