Last Day of the Festival, March 14, 2010

M-K-T restored depot at Hillsboro, Texas

The 4-day festival was fabulous.  Sold plenty of work and made plenty of new work–5 paintings, in fact.  The 10:00-6:00 hours daily provided plenty of time in the booth to do watercolor sketches.  I sketched this Katy Depot in Hillsboro last week as the sun was sinking.  I wasn’t too fond of the sketch.  This is my second attempt, using the digital photo I took while painting it the first time.  It’s a little better, I think.  I’m still fumbling with the textures of the tree bark, and looking to connect the leaves to the actual tree.  Also need to finish the main door, and render the wooden siding of the sunlit side of the depot.  I’ll soon post the other works I finished at the show.  It’s great to be painting again.

Thanks for reading.
