Summer Sketches

Two weeks of summer vacation – much of it at Waskesiu Lake in Prince Albert National Park – gave me plenty of time for a watercolor sketch or two – or ten! Here are four to share with you.

I love umbrellas at the beach – even though mine went airborn while I was working on this painting. Misfortune was narrowly averted. Rest assured no people or animals were injured in the creation of this image!

What to do after the morning juice, cereal and  journal?  Break out the paints and the sketchbook, of course.

Rowboat, paddleboats, kayaks, canoes, tiki huts. Tiki huts? What’s with that? I thought the boreal forest was a palm free zone!

Beach Bush Beauty-w

When you’re at the beach, you spend most of your time oriented to the sun, gazing out over the water. There’s even more to discover,  if you turn the other way.
