Well, I have taken a little break from blogging but my wife and I have been doing our outdoor sketches on a fairly regular basis. Here are few highlights.
It was a nice sunny afternoon and we sat at a sidewalk bistro and sketched the Rose Theatre. We love this little theatre and usually hit a matinee or an evening feature once or twice a month. We watched "Gravity" in 3D and last week we saw "Captain Phillips". Both are excellent movies.
I am thinking of doing a full size painting from this sketch.
We do a lot of hiking and this is a quick little sketch that I did while sitting in the Dosewallips State park next to the trail head. We were having a lunch break after completing a 4+ mile scenic hike through the forest.
This was a relaxing day at the beach. It was sunny and windy at Point No Point so we found a spot to sit out of the wind and sketched the lighthouse. The beach was crowded with beachcombers, kite fliers and fishermen casting the surf for salmon. Fun day!
