My summer sketchbook series

Salt marshes behind Shea's Restaurant in Essex, Massachusetts

It's been a busy summer! These days I can't seem to carve out enough time for oil painting sessions (I generally like to give myself a 3-6 hour stretch), so I've taken to making these watercolor sketches to satisfy my craving to create. I wish I had a Medici as a patron so I could play all day with paints.

And here are a few quick watercolor field study sketches that I made this week. By quick, I mean 15—20 minutes. I just want to capture the spirit of the place, the colors and the composition. I may revisit some of these scenes with my oil paints one day.
