It was a gorgeous January afternoon --- sunny and mid 50's -- and my regular forest buddy got taken to the farm by my dad, so I decided to go down and sketch by the river instead. I wanted to try some new Tombow pens (above) and visit a tree my friend Matt Matthews had photographed (below). See his marvelous photo here.
I did a couple of very quick watercolor sketches with Stabilo pen as a base, and I did a marker sketch of a nifty driftwood sculpture I came across. Gorgeous day. Tomorrow I'm heading to the country to paint.
