Bainbridge sidewalk

I stopped in Bainbridge for a cup of coffee at the sidewalk cafe outside Blackbird Bakers and made this sketch.

Woman on the bus

I sketched this woman as she dozed on the bus to downtown Seattle.

Corner of Roy and Broadway

I walked through Seattle on my way to a meeting a DHouse. Stopped to make a sketch of the corner of Roy and Broadway.

Guy on the ferry

This guy was sitting in front of me on the ferry. I like his face.

Top deck of the ferry

I took the ferry to Seattle for a meeting and sketched these people on the top deck. It was a beautiful warm summer day.

Neah Bay fishing boat

I like this photo of a family on their fishing boat in Neah Bay. The little guy in the middle is learning the family trade.

Tugboat at the dock

I liked this photo by Linda Evans so I made a watercolor of it.

Painting from the imagination

This afternoon I got out some watercolor paper and mixed up lots of paint and went at it. I painted these scenes from my imagination, freely and loosely, and I like what I got. Funny how just messing around with watercolors  gives surprising results sometimes.
