Today is a cool, rainy October day. I wanted to work on the fundamentals in my oils and get into taking the time to do sketches before I start. I was working from a photo I took last year which was cropped to a square. At that time, I had some some quick sketches, but never painted the scene. (right side of photo) Although I had already done much of the design from cropping my photo, I still wanted the practice of sketching. I drew a new sketch on bristol paper. I also was reusing a painting board which was a wipe down from a bad painting.(middle left).
