Missouri River in Montana

I made this watercolor when I was in Montana on a fly-fishing trip. This is the Missouri River, halfway between Helena and Great Falls. We stayed at the Missouri River Lodge, and I got up early in the morning and made the painting just down the road from the lodge.

Last life drawing class this year

Today was our last life drawing class for the year. We've met every Friday morning for three hours with a live model and it's been a lot of fun. I've learned a lot from the other artists and really enjoyed their company. Thank you Greg, Lori, Charlie, Susan, Teri, Margaret, John...

Pencil sketches

These are pencil sketches I made in my daily sketchbook. The first three are portraits from Starbucks. I often go there for my lunch break and I find sketching people relaxes me. The last one is a sketch of two Bremerton policemen I made the last time I was at the ferry terminal.
