Sketched Jan. 4, 9:34 a.m.
I did my first sketch of the year in the rain. Very Seattle. Since I was in a hurry, I didn’t wait for the watercolors to dry before closing the sketchbook. If you look closely, the colors on the photo are still wet. On the scan, however, you can see the marks left by dripping watercolor and areas that got messed up after slapping the book shut. Oh, well. I don’t really care. Sketching is all about the experience, isn’t it? The 15-minutes I spent sketching were a perfect way to start the day!
And speaking about the experience, can you guess where I was? This is a “must-come-back-to-sketch location” for sure.
Watercolor and Lamy Safari Fountain pen on 9 in. x 6 in., 93 lb. Super Deluxe Bee Paper sketchbook.
