Bridgeview Marina, Bremerton

I kind of like this marina because it's sort of hidden, in a rough-looking part of town. I made this sk
etch on the morning of the Fourth of July.

Fraiche Cup Coffee busker

On the morning of the Fourth of July, I came to downtown Bremerton near the ferry terminal and found this guy playing his electric guitar outside Fraiche Cup Coffee. He was really good! I enjoyed listening to him as I drew him.

PAL painters

In place of our regular meeting of the Poulsbo Artist League, we were invited to the home of Lisa Stowers for a plein air painting session. While the others painted the garden, I painted the painters. Lisa's home has beautiful gardens that were a pleasure to see and to paint. And there was something good to eat, too!'

Pike Street Market scene

While I was between meetings, I came to Pike Street Market in tha afternoon. It's always bustling with people and interesting things to draw. I made this watercolor sketch of the scene. 5 1/2 x 8 inches, Moleskine notebook.

This is my second time to do this watercolor, a typical barn scene in Kitsap County, painted from my imagination. 15 x 11 inches

Abdel at life drawing

I was pleased with this effort because it was a 10 minute pose, the last ten minutes of our session, and I quickly drew the figure and laid in some good washes.

 20 minutes pose

The head is too big (or the body is too small). I have a tendency to do this.

Issis at life drawing

I painted this one quickly and I like the spontaneity of it.

 A nice job on the face but the proportions of the figure are out of whack.

The proportions of this painting are actually pretty good. Didn't have time to fill in more color.

Serena Lewis for JKPP

I made this watercolor a few days ago but wasn't happy with it. I was able to fix the problems and now I like it.
