Today is Saturday - sermon writing day. I left the house this morning to go work on my sermon at the library, but I got sidetracked as I drove down Bunker Street and saw the old boats. The collection of shapes and colors are so attractive, I had to stop and make this watercolor.
Last week after I had my coffee at Samudra Coffee, I made a watercolor of the neighborhood just above thecoffee shop. I like the way the old houses seem to nestle into one another as they climb the hill.

Yesterday was my day off, and I intended to do a watercolor sketch somewhere around home, but I never got around to it. So after supper I got out a library book, Watercolors in a Weekend by Frank Halliday, and made this painting based on his instructions. I really like the raw sienna cloud color, and the ultramarine blue of the sky and clouds. It was a good learning exercise.
