Small Sketch

Posted by Picasa

Well, our weekend was cold and wintry with light snow flurries all day Saturday. I brought a stack of work home Friday, thinking that I would probably be snowed in and could use that excuse to finally get caught up. The big snow never came, but I decided to put off procrastinating and get my REAL work done anyway. I went so far as to skip Saturday morning's watercolor class and managed to finish off all the work I brought home -- so even though there is still a stack left on my desk at work, I am much more prepared to face it tomorrow morning.

And I managed to knock off this little watercolor, ink, and pencil sketch of some salt marshes from a photo on Wet Canvas. There's something about this kind of quiet, empty, almost desolate landscape that I really love. It will go into my box of imaginary travel sketches!
:-)
I hope your weekend was a good one, and that you stayed warm and dry.

What a lovely sketch. As always, you show us such a beautiful world. But I think you need some of our Calif. sunshine!!! You and Diahn need to fly out for some calif. sun and fun! It was a beautiful weekend despite me staying home ill but today I felt much better and got in a nice run and swim. Stay warm and keep painting!

Love the colours! I agree with everyone else, this is so quiet and serene. Makes me want to go for a walk - maybe with you? - along the beach.

Lovely!
