Waiting for the Sunset

When we were in Petoskey, Michigan for my Sketchbook/Watercolor Journaling Class, Catherine suggested that we sketch something that evening for practice.  So we (husband photographer & I) were down in the Park on the Bay waiting for the sunset, I decided to sketch the sailboat and fisherman and a few seagulls.  I watercolored it when we got back to the Hampton Inn (for relaxation :-)  We had some beautiful sunsets that week (see below).

For goodness sakes, I never looked at your blog before and enjoyed looking at your paintings and hearing about your class. You have really pretty paintings!

Thank you! I don't do watercolors to frame anymore--just the Journals of everyday stuff...It's a wonderful hobby to keep me painting.
Also have a "Card Ministry" at Church--putting my work on the front of a card and sending greetings for BD's, Annivs., etc.
Don't want to get into selling online--so I rarely post them.

How many years have you been taking the Class? I just love Petoskey!

Marj said...

Marlene, been taking the Class for several (?) years now. Also took a bookbinding class up there.

This sailboat is so beautiful. I've tried drawing boats many times, it's difficult to get the shape of the hull right when it's not sideways or a bow/stern view. It looks perfect!
