9X12 Pen and Ink Sketch on Strathmore Water Color Paper hit with water color washes and acrylic highlights. This was the coldest day in April and this part of Peggy’s Cove was frozen over but still showed reflections and the wild sea beyond. Tough light.
I am semi retired and love to travel with my 9X12 #140 Strathmore pad, my Sharpie Ultra Fine ink pen and five or six sticks of pastels or acrylics to color in my “finds” Sometimes I get real lucky and my wife Dawn will take some pictures I can use later. I seem to always be able to give some kind of sketch to my subjects or those bystanders who desperately want to give me some advice.
