Day and night in gorgeous February weather

An unseasonable warm spell over President’s Day weekend gave me an opportunity to practice some of that “line-less” watercolor sketching I mentioned a few days ago.

At Picnic Point Beach in Snohomish County I sketched the Olympic Mountains under mostly clear skies punctuated by soft clouds.

In the evening, I was actually driving to my watercolor class at Gage Academy of Art when the striking sunset prompted me to pull over for a quick sketch. I worked on it for about 20 minutes from 10th Avenue East just south of East Roanoke Street and finished it at home later from memory.

How did you enjoy this gorgeus February weather? If you know of interesting places to sketch, I’m always open to suggestions. Comment here or email me at gcampanario@seattletimes.com.
