Ferry watercolor portrait

Made this watercolor of a guy on the ferry. I was happy that I made it with the brush only (no pencil outline first).

Abdel at life drawing

These are the best of my drawings today. I'm sticking with watercolors at life drawing so I can improve.

Lytle Oyster Company

I'm at clergy conference at Ocean Shores. This afternoon I poked around an oyster company on Grays Harbor. I heard music and laughter coming from the production building, so I snuck in and found the Hispanic workers shucking oysters and having a great time. The lady boss threw me out, so I went across the river and made this watercolor.

Life drawings April 15

Made these watercolor paintings of Danny today at life drawing.

 This needed some darker values to define the figure better, but I like the posture and his face. He has a nice round belly in this painting.

I really struggled with his hands and knees on this one. But I like his face.

Ink drawings

I made these drawings using a Uniball micro pen, without any pencil drawing first. These were made a ferry trip to Seattle.
