Takoma Park DC Library Sketch (for those who asked about it)

Hello to the kids walking by that I chatted with. You asked me what I was doing sitting across from the Takoma Park DC Library way up on a steep hill. I had just started my sketch but I mentioned I would post the final image when I was done. You walked by again and showed me that you had found my website on your phone and asked if that was really a photo of me on the about page. Very impressive that you took the time to find out! I hope you enjoy this sketch.

Takoma Bicycle Watercolor Pen & Ink

Last Monday I used the opportunity of the beautiful weather to go outside and do some sketching. I walk by this place all the time and love the whirligigs in the front lawn so I thought it would be fun to paint– and it was quite a challenge! I’m new to sitting and painting outside like this. I love how using a watercolor sketchbook helps me loosen up and explore new ways of painting. I think I’m hooked!
