Beginning in the fall of 2015, I've been a art contributor to Live in Everett through "Sketchy Everett" - a visual exploration of the city I live in! These prints are some of my favorites from the blog.
I draw on site as much as I can, to capture not just the place, but the people and pace. Starting with a waterproof Ink pen, I draw my scene in about an hour. Then I use watercolors to bring in color and playfulness.
Grave markers and lichen-covered headstones dot the grassy hills, with no discernible order. Giant maple trees shed their fire-red canopies and majestic golden cypress emphasize each vista. Strolling around the rolling hills and crunchy leaves of Evergreen Cemetery in the autumn feels like a countryside ramble despite its location at 4505 Broadway, next to Interstate 5 in north Everett.
This is a print on archival matte paper. Every print size includes a generous two inches of border so that the print can fit right into a standard frame and be ready to hang!
Keep checking back for more local scenes...I'm committed to exploring Everett's 'sketchiness' from sunup to sundown. Check out the whole series at LiveinEverett.com (www.liveineverett.com/blog?tag=sketchy+Everett)
