These are all small watercolor sketches from a bound volume I have used and carry in the car. The top two were done on the spot: in Algoma, Wisconsin and the second along the shoreline in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The others were done in a watercolor class that I've taken in the past. Sometimes when I just don't have a lot of time a small portrait is good to keep the skills sharp. Something like this isn't always meant to share with anyone else, although I am putting them up here today. Otherwise they will never see a frame or the light of day again. As some of my teachers (Ralph Oberg and Marc Hanson) would say: "You're gathering information".
