Scanning through old sketch books for inspiration, I am reminded of favorite themes and old skills.. This sketch was done with co/pic markers my son sent to me before our cruise on the Danube. The markers bleed through most paper is recycled stone and is tough. (4″ X 6″)
Watercolor and oil pastel on cardstock.
When Frank lived in Salem, he lived near the House of Seven Gables. At the back of that house was this tree which I sketched and photographed often.
We seem to be off to a slow start.
When I lived in Charleston, I walked past this house every day. I took some photos of it, but also sketched it several times, never doing a completed drawing. I look back fondly on that daily walk but have found some new places here in Cincinnati to sketch.
