Kristin, 58-60 Out the window again
This is what has been coming out of my pseudo-daily sketching routine; moving outside the bird box. I have been noticing things outside and quickly sit down to sketch them, or I try to remember which colors and shapes I like about what I saw and then work from memory. The first one below I did from life, out the window (it is way too cold for me to paint outside right now). In the second I was trying to rework the first to get more color, but I actually think I like the first one better maybe because it has more texture. Then the last on is from my walk home the other night. I actually painted it a couple days after I saw it, so maybe I forgot the details. I did a wash and then used gouache on top.
