Homer Watson's Sketchbooks

“Homer Watson made a practice of carrying a small sketch book with him at all times.  It was his wont to ‘jot down’ sketches that were often used later as a basis for his larger, more important works. These miniatures he called ‘Idle Moments.’ -Myrtle Bean

As Homer Watson was developing his skills, he filled many sketchbooks with his drawings.  Later, he used his sketchbooks to create preliminary drawings and studies for his paintings.  The collection at Homer Watson House & Gallery contains two of Watson’s original sketchbooks.
