Sketches in a Colonial Town

A visit to Williamsburg afforded only a little time for sketching.  Rapid drawings using a Pentel Aquash brush were, in some cases, supplemented later with watercolor, based on color notes taken at the time.  The Aquash was handy, freeing one from the need to dip a brush into a bottle of ink, but it leaked in my pocket, and the reservoir was soon empty.  Nonetheless, a pleasure to draw with.  The color drawing shows the newly rebuilt Blacksmith Shop.

I have visited Colonial Williamsburg 24 times since 1976.  Below is an oil-on-panel of the Brush-Everard House, now part of an art collection in Philadelphia.
