Mayville PA Depot 1898

Another sketch/line drawing from a Mayville, NY photo circa 1898.  Summer is coming–we shall soon paint these historic drawings together!

Mayville Bobsled Circa 1900

In preparation for historic line drawings that my students will paint at Mayville Watercolors at the Depot this summer, I’m sketching from old photos, then creating line drawings. In addition to watercolor immersion classes, we will offer simple paint-in-the-lines classes all summer.  Here is one we’ll paint at classes on July 24 & 25.  Check out www.mayvillewatercolors.com.

The excitement is already building! Out of This World Travel has created another wonderful sketching opportunity for us to enjoy!
