A couple of weeks ago I went with some friends to Snow Lake in Mississippi just to have a couple of days away from regular stuff. We went out on a pontoon boat, floated in the lake, kayaked and did one of those balance board things. We watched Moonstruck, ate a lot of cheese, drank a lot of wine, and just had a lovely visit with each other.
I made the sketch on the left before breakfast on Saturday morning, using watercolor only in preparation for my Sketching with Watercolor class at Flicker Street Studio – I can never seem to leave class prep behind.
On the boat that morning I sketched a few friends with my multi-colored pencil.
After boating and trying the balance board and drinking a little bit of wine I made this sketch that looks messy but feels accurate – it was a bright, sunny, lovely, relaxing day.
Sketchwork is sketches and work about sketching - teaching, making art, art supplies, books, sketchers, artists, Urban Sketchers, Memphis Urban Sketchers, and traveling.
