Murray Corner (20-minute sketch)
It's back to the Maritimes again for me. I had to leave art class early last night to get to a meeting, so only had about 20 minutes to work on a painting, so this is truly a "quickie" sketch even by my standards. The reference photo I used was taken up by Murray Corner, New Brunswick. This is fast and rough, of course, but I like the composition well enough that I think I want to try to expand it into a more finished work. This sketch was done on Canson, smooth side, about 8x10. Maybe in the finished work I'll be able to get the cow to look like a cow.
