It's interesting to note that the change in my drawing style over this period of time. Practice makes better. Happy New Year to us, one and all!

The water of fountains
It's the bleak midwinter and yet I have visions of waves and rivulets, spray and froth dancing in my head. No time to work on my rock and water paintings until the new year, unfortunately. I'm leaving for Paris (and Bruges) next Monday for a short trip and this has made me think of fountains, a subject of many of my travel sketches there and elsewhere. With these memories in mind and with anticipation of seeing a wintry Seine and the frozen canals of Bruges, I put together a slideshow of fountain sketches from the past two or three years.
