I recently spent three weeks in Seattle dog-sitting for my son. I wisely brought my watercolors with me. One of the highlights of my occasional trips to Seattle is a visit to Pike Place Market. It’ such a feast for the eyes (but hard on the nose.) This time I was able to wander at will, without certain male family members whining about the shops I wanted to visit. I also treated myself to an inexpensive bouquet of flowers.
Here it is. Ten bucks! It made an inspiring subject, except it took me a few days to get to it, and it wilted some. No worries. I did my sketch in brown colored pencil which helped cut back on pencil smear. And because it’s brown it melds into the background so a win/win as far as I’m concerned.
