watercolor and brown Sharpee ultra fine pen in Arches Travel Book
Just got back last night from another three day paddle/camping trip in the high Sierras (California) with Seqouia Paddle Clubbers featuring sketching. We loaded up canoes and kayaks with camping gear and paddled to the other end of the lake. Granite rock and pines and crystal clear water that was constantly changing colors along with the sky and wind action.
This was not like a backpacking trip with dried food taken out of vacuum packed bags. We feasted, and Isabelle had made a Clafouti with fresh cherries (emphasis on the first syllable and I think you have to be French like her to say it right).
Vis-a-vis wet erase fine point pen, spritzed with water and splattered (by Isabelle) with red ink
Sitting around the campfire after dinner, in the dark, we did a “sketchdare” and first sketched whatever we could see of Carl, and then Dave. . .
Then around 9:30pm the moon rose behind the mountains across the lake and everyone was busy trying to capture the glory of it on camera. I’ve forgotten how to tell my camera to do anything more than point and shoot, so I just stared at it, and next day painted this one from memory.
That was day one. Come back tomorrow for day two.
