These paintings on the left were done quickly after originally sketching the subject for 30min. This detailed sketch is below. The subject is removed and the quick sketches were done. I like painting quickly with as few brush strokes as possible. That is why watercolor appeals to me; it's like golf. There is feeling with few brush strokes and that gets lost with overworking. I even tried sketching left handed. If I keep at it, I will eventually get an abstract or symbol that is representative of a tennis shoe (maybe, I will be the only one to know). This is a good exercise.
