Watercolor Sketches

Morning Sunlight--watercolor & ink sketch, 5x8.  These are in my sketchbook from our recent visit to my dad's farm.  I like to sketch with watercolors--they're quick and fun. I liked the way the shadowy foreground contrasted with the bright morning sunlight on the distant pasture.
Deer--watercolor & ink sketch, 5x8.  One evening, these 2 deer, casting deep shadows, came down to the pond for a drink.

SOLD Cows Grazing--watercolor & ink sketch, 5x8.  These cows aren't really purple; they're black, but in the evening light, they looked purple.  There has been a lot of rain this summer, and the grass is tall and plentiful.

Lovely sketches! I like how loose the drawings are, but their forms remain intact. Just goes to show how well the shadows make the drawings. Anyway, I'm in awe of your talent, Ann. I hope you keep us posted for more. Thanks for sharing that! Kudos and more power to you!
