Back to 1984. While I was producing space and fantasy images in my studio in Cambridge, Mass., I was also roaming my neighborhood drawing pictures of houses and street scenes in a sketchbook. I drew the sketch in brown ink, used watercolor pencil to note the colors and then added watercolor in the studio to finish the work. I did quite a number of these, on location sitting on a folding stool, before winter came and made it impossible to draw outdoors. This one is dated August 21, 1984. Ink and watercolor on sketchbook page, 5" x 9".
