Rainy Day River Sketch

Hoquiam River in the Rain
2.6" x 4.6"
Casey Klahn

The river series' continue to keep my interest in the studio. I am having a grand time and wanting to steer the series back toward the first Hoquiam River scenes that got the whole thing started. Here is a sketch of the rainy waterway, with emphasis on the gray scale.

Pastels will be posted, soon.

Beautiful charcoal study, Casey. I'm looking forward to the pastels. Thanks for the heads-up on the Wolf Kahn show at Ameringer & Yohe here in New York. It was a real pleasure to see his pastels and oil paintings in person, and a very pleasant way to wind down the work week. I came away with a beautifully published catalog of the works from the show, plus two other books that were produced for previous shows Kahn had at the gallery. You can download a PDF of the catalog at the gallery's website, by the way. I'll write more about the show on my blog over the weekend.

Awesome! I look forward to your post on the exhibit. I got a catalog there, once, and it was high quality.

I'll check out the website.

Very nice. Can't wait to see any new pastels of yours.

Casey Klahn said...

Still waiting on pix. Thanks for watching out, Jala.

Nice sketch, reminds me of some little tonal studies I saw in a terrific book by Harold Speed on drawing.

Appreciate it, Steve. Value is big in this series, and translating it in pastel my current passion.
