Made a watercolor of this couple at Starbucks. Kind of interesting to get out the watercolors right there at the table. They were across the room and didn't notice what I was doing.

Wikipedia says, "USS Turner Joy was one of 18 Forrest Sherman-class destroyers of the United States Navy. She was named for Admiral Charles Turner Joy USN. Commissioned in 1959, she spent her entire career in the Pacific." She's moored in the Bremerton Marina as a breakwater and a tourist attraction. Made this sketch in my Moleskine notebook on Saturday morning.

Post Alley is one of the narrow alleys near Pike Street Market that's filled with shops and restaurants. Lots of character here. I made this ink sketch in about 25 minutes, ran for the ferry and added color while I was on the ferry.

From this photo. I made this watercolor after reading Watercolor Secrets by Charles Reid. I like the way Reid makes a light pencil sketch, then places his darks boldly, using complementary colors to bring out color harmonies.

On the morning of the Fourth of July, I came to downtown Bremerton near the ferry terminal and found this guy playing his electric guitar outside Fraiche Cup Coffee. He was really good! I enjoyed listening to him as I drew him.
