I have a passion for the line- and the line, when coupled with quick watercolor washes, gives the immediacy and honesty and truth to a picture. They may not be ‘accurate’ like a photo, but what is reality, really?! The photographic image is no more real- the flow of time doesn’t stop in 1/250 of a second intervals. And drawing focuses on what I am actually concentrating on, without all the extraneous detail. Sketching is a wat to deliver a visual poem, instead of the ‘War and Peace’ of realism or photo realism.
This is a still life of my on site sketch kit With sketchbook, watercolor palette, pen, pencil, spray bottle and brushes- all fitting in a small sling bag, which I take everywhere!
