Update on my March 10th Post.....

I posted the sketch of Broadway Church of Christ on the left back in March( )...a quick sketch just to explore composition, value, etc. 

The sketch on the left was done in the studio from the study....I apologize for this one-time violation of  the first imperative of the USK Manifesto(We draw on location, indoors or out, capturing what we see from direct observation), but I thought it was interesting to see the difference.  I think I prefer the looser and free-er feel of the original study!  My work tends to "lose something" when I labor too hard over it!  

Back to pure location sketching!


  1. I love your sketches.
    This is fabulous, are sketches in detail.
    Congratulations for your good work and have a good weekend!!!

  2. Tim, both are great, but I prefer the first one too.

  3. The second one is good for accurate depiction, but I have to agree the lively on location sketch has more personality.

  4. I like 2nd one and its good to apologize its makes others to give you more importance.
