Sketchbook Fun

How do you do, I am pleased that you found me here and I would like to shake your hand with my massively over-sized mitt.

 Oh, Mr Darcy! If we were only from the same adaptation I would plant a kiss right on you with my funny-looking mouth!

Kids these days.

Watercolor time travel: 
These are small (roughly 5" x 8") works from my watercolor sketchbook. Period costumes! Loose, water-splashery fun that I can enjoy in all their imperfect-ness. These are from online reference photos. I'd like to do some from life, but it's difficult to convince 
the busy forester-farmer-types that I hang out with to dress in 
ruffles, tights, and knee pants!


  1. Your frequent costume character studies are making you a better artist. Keep up the good work!

  2. Kudos to you, Suzy. I knew immediately that the first study was Mr. Darcy. I agree with Brian. Costume characters are awesome references. How's the "Drawing Course" going?
