Painting around Richmond

Crossroads. 8x8" graphite and watercolor
Coin Laundry. 5x13" dip pen and watercolor
Rumors. 8x8" graphite, watercolor and acrylic


Bunny Hop.  7x 11" graphite
Crossroads. 8x8" Graphite and Watercolor

This is some work from my last semester in Communication Arts @ VCU. This work was all drawn from life, and painted from life, from photos and from memory. All locations were locally owned and operated shops in Richmond and was also an exersize in getting the life and whatever that's in my sketchbook into my work. I can feel it starting to get there. 
In the end I settled on a size, 8x8" which made it easy to carry around, and on  300 lb Watercolor paper for durability. I hated squares when I started doing these, but now there my favorite. I found that they frame and feel better than something that is almost a square like 3x4 or 8x10. to me at least. Lemme know what you think. thanks!
