Red Door and Book Cart

Feeling rusty's an understatement. Here's a funky sloppy sketch of the South Whidbey Commons in Langley. When all else fails throw paint at it. I do like the splatters.


And a sketch of the warm and hospitable Mary, a Whidbey Island Sketcher. Thanks for having us!

  1. Hey, don't underestimate your spattering talent! I love spatters too, but don't know how to do it effectively like you! Very pretty painting!

  2. Thanks so much for your support, Katherine. Haven't done much sketching lately so it's nice to get back to it. As far as splatters go, I have more success with them if I knock a loaded brush against the side of a pen. They do seem to take a little practice.

  4. Thanks Sue! The Commons is a wonderful little non-profit coffee and book shop where high school kids learn how to pull coffee and use the cash register. It's become a happening place. Lots of live music, poetry readings and such. Local Characters too!
