another showing...



View of Richmond Island from Crescent Beach—6" X 6 " oil on canvas board using small pochade box.

Fog still hanging off Richmond Island—watercolor in small Moleskine
Fog beginning to lift and the skies are clearing—watercolor in square handbook

My house is for sale, so when it is being shown to potential buyers, Sophie and I have to make ourselves scarce for an hour or so. We leave the cats to show everyone around. Today, to kill time, we went around the corner to the beach. It was nice to sit on a bench, enjoy the sun and sea breeze and do some very quick sketches in watercolor and oil. I forgot paper towels so none of my brushes really got cleaned between colors—so, a bit muddy.  People stopped to look over my shoulder, chat a bit and Sophie got lots of attention.
