Sail Boat Regatta

36-wednesday sailors Study  6″x8″  (Aquarell water graphite pencil on watercolor paper) I love these pencils – they are so fun to use. Draw and add water with a small brush and shade as you go.

Duluth, Minnesota at Lake Superior – study sketches. Sailing boats are always moving and a bit of a distance away so you have to plein air grab what you can or photograph them. I prefer to just find a bench or rock and give it a try. Later these boats may become a studio painting, or maybe not. The Aquarell pencil allows great range in shading and drawing on site (plein air).

The Aquarell pencil also gives a uniform look to sketches over time, with consistent shading values.
