Old garage on the Narrows


My favorite way to drive to Bremerton is not through the concrete and neon jungle of Wheaton Way, but along the winding road that follows the Washington Narrows. It's very slow, but the views of the water are lovely.

Along the way is an old house in poor repair with a neglected garage. I stopped in the driveway and made this watercolor of the garage, trying to capture the dark interior and the overgrown blackberries.

It's funny how my eye is attracted to old neglected things. That's where I find visual interest and variety, and those are the things that make the best subjects for painting and drawing.
