Several small- and medium-size, roughly-finished oil and watercolor paintings apparently signed by Schafer are known. In contrast with the larger studio paintings, some of them have a uniform illumination and lack a central focus. These paintings seem to be sketches, perhaps in some cases made in the field. Most of them bear a signature consisting of block-printed letters but the letters are composed with much more rounded strokes than in the signatures found on the studio paintings. These differences lead to an attribution concern: any individual sketch may be Thus whether each of these paintings is an authentic work by Schafer is open to question.

There is also a 32-page sketchbook and a separate index of those sketchbook sketches.
