This quick sketch took about an hour. I used a plein air oil painting I did a year ago in Noyo Harbor at Fort Bragg, California for the subject matter. It's obvious I'm still learning watercolor technique. My washes are overworked and my painting approach is clearly that of an oil painter...strong and even a bit ham-handed...but I really enjoy these little sketches. In a very short time it's done for better or worse. I plan to try the same subject on a half sheet next...and with a bit more pre-planning. Meanwhile, it's back to the shadows and the skyscraper.
