Must i tell you how good it feels
to see blue sky and green grass again?
I didn't think so.I've been spending time going for walks
and noticing the little big things -
and this...(see the full moon way back there?)
So impressive when you think about it...
Did this the other night
when i didn't really know what i felt like painting.
From a photo in a magazine.
A depressing painting, now that i see it here,
but a painting nonetheless.
And then this morning,
i treated myself to a walk at the nearby beach
for a bit of plein air sketching.
It's not something i do often.
Sketchbook Skool has inspired me
to go out and sketch in the great outdoors.
This isn't the most beautiful beach,
but it's filled with so many great things to sketch...
flowers, driftwood, seaweed.
So i sketched on site
and added the water-colour once i got home.
I left out a lot of detail
mainly because i was sitting on a log
and my butt felt like it was gonna fall off after a while.
The bridge you see is only wide enough for one car at a time.
Tourists are always in for a surprise in these parts... ;-)
So there you have it.
Shediac Bridge, New Brunswick, Canada!
Then this afternoon,
a bit more sketching,
just cause it's summer,
and i'm so damn happy about that...
and about getting some time to myself
to do what i love.
Some cross hatching!
something else i don't do often,
but SBS got me going again...
You've probably seen this quote a thousand times,
but i'm posting it again anyway.
Just cause i love it so much.And i thought you'd like this little sign i saw
the other night as we took a drive to the wharf & had ice cream.
I'm not big on seafood, but it's a big thing here in the summer.
and for those who don't know what fried clams look like...
here they are - in all their glory.
Thanks for being here!
I'll be back soon...
