Edgar - ink

ink, 2016
nfs, 8"x11"

      Just a quick ink sketch I did of great American horror writer Edgar Allan Poe. And, yes, if you haven't noticed before, his face - eyes especially - is definitely NOT symmetrical. None are; his is just really obvious.

Angie's Shoes - watercolor

available, 11"x15"

      I haven't done one of these in a while. A pair of my wife's shoes -- one of the many. A somewhat looser treatment than usual.

Hatteras #3 - watercolor

watercolor, 2016
available, 11"x15"

      The Cape Hatteras Lighthouse as seen from the Keeper's House. I shot the reference for this during our trip to the Outer Banks last year. I'm quite happy with this one -- even the sky, though the scan washed out much of it. The only thing I would do differently is add a touch more warm color in the lighthouse shadow near the bottom. And maybe one more person closer to the foreground.

Angie #35 - watercolor

watercolor, 2016
nfs, 7"x11"

      Another portrait of my beautiful bride. I've very happy with how the shadows on her face and reflections on her sunglasses worked. The reference photo was taken by her BFF several years ago on a girls outing to the Grove Winery in Gibsonville NC, a one-time favorite haunt of theirs.
