I normally just do natural landscapes, but I like the Greek statue at the Briars and will like to go back and use it as a theme for future sketches.

The day started out nice but clouds rolled in and soon the rain started.  That’s not so good while you are painting with water colors so I had to zip things up in a baggie and kayak under the willow.  I don’t mind overcast days as the clouds are interesting and gives you a chance to explore more subtle tones and hues.

I made another visit to the Verandah to draw my summer version.  I’ll try another in the fall.

First major snow fall of the year, Dec 29th 2012.  Watercolors are great for travel but the water starts to freeze and you have to be fast with the brush.  My Ipad would short out in snow fall so I could not risk it.  I came back inside to additional details with adding opaque white to create more contrast.

Here’s a digital sketch I did one year ago when it was much more milder and from 180 degrees on the other side…
