House Sketch

This drawing is no great shakes but I did learn a lot by drawing it. Done entirely in Painter and mostly with the real 2B pencil and bucket fill tool. I really like that pencil!

Colors in Winter

Winter changes the color palette around here. More whites and grays and browns. When you do find color, it pops. Such was the case with this snow plow in front of this church. The orange plow was so brilliant surrounded by all the muted and less saturated colors around it.

Harbor Ducks

This morning I walked down to the harbor with my camera and sketchbook. A beautiful day - crisp new snow and blue skies.
