Because Portland is the new New England, which is now having the moderate weather I was hoping to enjoy here, a 2nd time. Here’s hoping things improve! If they don’t I’m going to need more of a budget to escape the region at least one month, preferably two, per winter. One complicating factor & airfare increaser is I’d need to bring Sir Henry. He’s my Support Animal.
This is an autobiographical illustration, which is why I actually signed it.
Just a quick sketch I started plein air but finished inside, cause I packed my supplies in a hurry & forgot both water & erasers. I’m experimenting with my set of watercolor pencils, which I haven’t used much. They can be fun if you don’t insist on tightness & strict realism I think, possibly.
When spring time comes I should return to outdoor landscape and do a whole series. Need to do more architectural stuff. Am working on a more finished piece now but I’m letting it rest in my imagine before one more finishing session.
