"Anne Street"

In my sketchbook i find all sorts of little drawings and doodles that long to be made into paintings. This was one such sketch i found from way back. The idea was to try and do a whimsical street scene towards the end of day when the last light is fading. It is about 11 X 14 and done with watercolor on 300 lb. Arches CP paper. My sketch books are running out of fresh ideas though and i think it may be time to get into the habit of using them again. Coffee shops are great places to sit and doodle or draw people. Just have to try and not let them know what you are doing. Smile! Next up; "Painting what's on the inside!'. God bless! ross


  1. I love your whimsy. It looks to me as if the houses are all leaning back just a tad to make room for me to walk down the street. Lovely!

  2. This is so charming, Ross. I love your little characters - they always seem so full of joy. I would really love to spend a day in one of your villages:-)

  3. Thanks Christiane, and Elizabeth. I really appreciate your comments. I think i make the places where i would like to live too! As i am painting i wonder which house shall be mine! Smile!
