In My Sketchbook
These are the water colors that Tom gave me for Christmas. There's actually a whole other row of colors under the ones I drew here. Then I went outside...
This sketch is an area of my backyard...I know it's hard to see; below you see it in color.
The Pink Shop
I was at a local hardware on Rt. 7 earlier today, and directly across the street from where I parked, was this little pink shop. It's empty now but it's been many shops over the years and not always pink. It sits in a precarious place with a river right behind it....almost under it. So I snapped a photo and came home to sketch it and add a little bit of water color. Here's the photo of it...
How could I not try to capture it? It's sweet. I love the "looseness" of sketching!
