A couple more scraps from my sketchbook, and I'm finished talking about this vacation! I ended up filling nearly half a book, which is amazing to me because it used to take months to get halfway through a sketchbook!
Birch trees against the dark pines. I just can't figure out how to do the detail of the birches without losing the look of how they stood out, so it will just have to remain as is.
The fishing lure was painted before the trip. The WC of the point was started our first morning in Canada, but I didn't finish the last wash of darks until after we got back. I like this "sloppy" watercolor business!
On our last day in camp we had some dark storm clouds pass through. As they blew out, the sun was beginning to set, and that SPECIAL light (you know the kind I mean - all gold against the dark) hit the tops of the trees. I snapped a couple of photos, thinking it would make a good pastel landscape (which I haven't done in years, by the way.)
Now I'm having difficulty seeing how it should be cropped for the best composition. Anyone with any ideas?
