More Sketches from Thanksgiving Week

This day was cold and windy.  However, the sun was brightly shining and the bark and structure of these Sycamore trees  was too beautiful to resist sketching while sitting in the warmth of our car. "Precise" pen and a touch of watercolor.

An inside still life at our vacation retreat.  "Precise" pen, applying water for wash and some watercolor.

Thanksgiving Week

Over and over again I enjoy sketching/painting the interesting wind-swept  "Live Oak" trees at Fort Fisher. I did this while sitting in the front seat of our car on a windy, misty day during our holiday travels.

Earlier in the morning this amusing lavender colored house on Salisbury St. in Wrightsville Beach caught my eye.
