Whidbey Island


I know some of you are waiting impatiently for a new entry, but this beautiful landscape keeps our days busy.

On Wednesday we went for a trip to Whidbey Island. A resident recommended a hiking tour along the coast. We hiked in this beautiful forest with its big trees left me deeply impressed. Along the trip we stopped for several sketches and tried to get a feeling for the landscape, its shapes and colors.

Not always an easy thing but we immensely enjoys our self and the fact to have all the time we need.

On our way back the evening light pushed us to a final sketch at our favourite barn. More about that in the next entry.

    The ants are now a part of your sketching process. I am glad you are progressing, and you are pacing yourself.

    Sleep well at night, and enjoy your painting time!
