While I have been working with watercolor for over forty years, watercolor sketching is a relatively recent addition to my artistic pursuits. At the turn of the millennium I took a research trip to India to prepare for a series of paintings on Buddhist Animal Wisdom Stories. In India I found that doing watercolor sketches created a very unique memory bond with the subject I was painting. Since that time I taught many classes on the subject and wrote a small book on my approach. Most Sketches are 9" X 12".
