Recent Watercolor Sketches



Over the holidays I purchased a watercolor Moleskine and I am enjoying the sketchbook very much.  This one is larger than the one I saw a few months ago, with no perforations for removing the painting.  These two sketches were adapted from online news photos of the Obama inauguration.  I don't usually like to work from photos taken by other people, but on January 20th we were at home, which probably was the best place to see the festivities.  Here are Yo Yo Ma and Aretha, both looking very cold indeed.  At least Aretha had a coat, gloves and a hat.

These are gorgeous Sherry!! The WC Moleskine agrees with you. I always carry mine in my purse.

These are great! I was disappointed, as a fan of hats for men and women, that the Obamas didn't wear hats ...

Sherry said...

Laura, I'm a fan of hats also, and I think that President O. and Michelle missed an opportunity to start a trend. Not even the girls wore hats, did they?

These are wonderful, especially Aretha.

I love her hat...she was fabulous...as well as the rest... who had to play a tape of their music because of the extreme cold and their delicate instruments...two awesome captures of a magnificent day! :)

That music was wonderful. When Aretha started singing, I started tearing up. Very nice work!
