It's been a while since I've taken the time to go outside and sketch. A couple of weeks ago, I grabbed my gear and headed over to a place near my home that will be under construction for several more months. I decided to keep this one loose...pencil and watercolors. I'll definitely return!
After I got home, I happened to catch this view from my upstairs office window. The sun was illuminating the bright pink blooms on my neighbor's tree. As I post this, the blooms are already gone, and the new leaves are sprouting. Catch these moments when you can...they don't last long! I used a sepia marker for the line, highlights with a white Sharpie marker, then over-glazed with more watercolor washes.
