Happy July 1!


Dang! This SHOULD have been posted last month (yesterday) and at that it would have been 4days after the fact. It's sOo hot I'm not sure where I will walk/bike for this weeks self energized tour.

This w/c sketch was done during a 10mi/17k bike ride when I sat on a rock on the beach across the street from this lovely old place that I wish was mine. Last night sitting more than half-way up the mountain I added a little w/c pencil to darken up the garden area and provide a stronger contrast to the stone fence in the foreground.

Lovely watercolour. Those red flowers tumbling over, so gorgeous. And you picked a nice position that makes a lovely composition
