Quick Sketching

A couple of years ago I had the opportunity to take a class in a quick sketching method while visiting in Whidby Island, Washington.    Because I primarily paint using acrylic and oil, I thought this would be a great opportunity to learn something new.   After arriving for the class, I knew instantly this was going to be three fun filled days, I was not wrong... and I was hooked!  
When returning home I quickly started shopping for more fun items to add to my current "arsenal" of sketching art supplies, tucked them into my compact field kit and have not stopped sketching since.  
The key to this to do it fast.... no messing around, no worries about perfectionism, get in and get out!  


Below are a few of my sketches... all are available for purchase as a 5x7 print matted to 8x10 .   If you'd like information on them (what or where it was sketched) just let me know.   

Quick Sketch House Portraits

I am now accepting commissions for Quick Sketch House Portraits!

I will sketch your house (or a portion of your house) from photos in ink with a water color wash in 5x7 matted to 8x10 (similar to photo on the left) $40 includes shipping.

A gift keepsake for a family member, friend or yourself.  
Would make a great house warming gift!


If you are interested in a more detailed drawing or painting of your house please contact me to discuss size and price options.

Have an interest in learning the tips, tricks, and techniques of getting started in quick sketching?

I offer workshops on occasion. Check out Beckley Art Center in Beckley and watch for dates!
