Forgot the watercolor block, Father’s Day, June 20, 2010

Channeling Andrew Wyeth

I accompanied my wife Sandi to Lyndon Acres today where she was going to ride Andante.  My plan was to get in a quick watercolor sketch, then head for the gym.  Well . . . I failed to pack watercolor blocks or paper.  I always carry spare watercolor blocks in my Jeep, but emptied all contents yesterday so I could have it washed and vacuumed inside and out yesterday at the Elite Car Wash.  The watercolor blocks were still in my garage along with jumper cables!  Oh well–instead I drew out an HB pencil and my journal, which contained good acid-free unlined paper, and I knocked out this quick sketch, thinking about how focused Andrew Wyeth always was with his pencil drawings.  I need to work much more in this medium.  Perhaps tomorrow.

    Good texture in the tree trunk and the little plants that seem to dance behind the bucket. I love Andrew Wyeth’s drawing and his work in any medium is inspiring! I would love to see more of your drawings.

      Thanks. I really wish to draw more and think I will now that summer has given me a break from school. I want to spend more time studying Wyeth–his draughtsmanship takes my breath away.
