Sketchbook: Surroundings

Here's a spread from my latest Moleskine. At the time, I was working on the painting below this post. The sketches are from imagery of Coastal Maine. In the end, I decided to go with a special little garage I found in Northern Rhode Island. 


For my Intro. to Watercolor class at RISD, my final for fall semester was to create an original painting in the style of a watercolorist of our choosing. This painting references the colors, applications, and subject matter of Andrew Wyeth.  I had a good time going out into different parts of Rhode Island with my camera and exploring the local landscape.

Lately, I've been exploring my family's past on both my mother's and father's side. Here are some images created using snapshots from my family's past. I used acrylic medium on untreated canvas to create these.  It's a method I'm definitely excited about experimenting with more.
