My sketchbook from the summer of 2009

  These are some of my preliminary drawings for my larger paintings that were taken from my sketchbook last summer. I worked on location in Cranford, New Jersey and Jersey City, New Jersey. With some or the sketches I added a little watercolor or just watercolor. The sketchbook for me is a way of organizing my ideas, reference for time of day and the light to be recorded. Sometime I'll do numerous studies before deciding on a final painting. The sketchbook is also personal, like a diary, with a sense of intimacy.
