Tacubaya Awning and 4th Street Berkeley, ink and watercolor, 5×8 in

I’m going to post often for the next couple weeks to get caught up on all the things I haven’t posted because of continually choosing painting over posting. I’m also going to try to write less and keep it simple so that I can get the images online quickly and get back in the studio. So here are 4 sketches that got orphaned from last year. Above is the view from a table under the awning outside Tacubaya on 4th Street in Berkeley.

The Pallet Space was a junk shop going out of business in Oakland where we sketched one evening. An amazing collection of junk and trash ripe for sketching.

Someone wrote and asked for a print of a previous sketch of my cow glass that I’d sold so I offered to paint it again but still haven’t gotten it just the way I want it.

I was experimenting with some sample QOR watercolors. I haven’t fully explored their possibilities since I got seduced by gouache and haven’t looked back at the QORs since then.

  1. I have a cow glass like that! A few, actually. They are very pretty, especially in your painting! 😀

  2. 🙂 I would just love to sit by one of the tables, let the wind blow around my face and enjoy a sip of something nice – a coffee or a glass of wine…it looks so nice there!
    Lovely sketches! 🙂

  3. Great sketches! I know how you feel about being behind on posting. I now have a small arsenal of sketches that haven’t made it to my blog yet…but I think I might prefer that to having nothing to post. 🙂 I love your use of watercolors on the cow glass!

    • Jamie, I hear you! It’s true, not a bad problem to have, especially after a year of doing more dog-related things than art after adopting a puppy. I’m so happy to get back to making lots more art but always would rather be doing that than posting it! Thanks for the comment on the cow glass. I’m actually not thrilled with the results and will try again later.
