Hello Mr. Coyote

One of the bennies of plein air painting is the occasional unexpected wildlife sighting. This morning after I left the diner where Ed and I met at 6AM to draw for an hour, I went painting by the Providence River, sitting in my car, when this coyote emerged from the grasses. Pretty cool! I managed to snap a pic before he took off.

And finally broke out my colored pencils...

The West Side Diner

Another early morning drawing, this time at the West Side Diner, newly refurbished and recently opened on the west side of Providence. The bottom drawing is my sketch partner Ed, who does some wonderful pen and ink work.

Morning at the Seaplane diner

 Ed and I went to a diner yesterday morning to draw for an hour before he went to work. At 6AM I'm barely seeing straight so my first one required a lot of erasing.

This guy sat down at the end of the counter in front of us- I'm getting warmed up.

Then in the few minutes before we left I got this guy captured- I'm really happy with the gesture and the economy of the line.

The cemetery lane

While waiting for my students this morning I did this quick sketch of the minister's house and the lane that leads to the cemetery.

If you're in Providence- the painting students at the Handicraft Club, where I teach, are having their first ever show outside of the club. It will be at the Central Congregational Church, 296 Angell St. and opens this Friday night, 5-8PM. Drop in and have some free refreshments.
