Sketchbook Tuesday

Sometimes I just feel like playing around with my watercolor pencils. I guess it's that combination of drawing and painting that appeals to me. I get to scribble and splash water around. And I am still working on those trees. This was a practice sketch in my watercolor sketch pad. There are parts of this sketch I am happy with and other parts where I wish I hadn't done that. So the lesson here is to be able to repeat what I like about this one the next time.

Your trees look great and the whole feel is wonderful. I've tried the watercolor pencil, but never really got into them. hopefully you are keeping notes.

Very nice perspective, the colors hazing in to the distance, the lovely trees on my right, the stone work all are pluses!

Wow. This is watercolor pencils?? I've never been able to get mine to do that! Mine must be broken or something! :D Wonderful sketch! I'm not seeing any places I would change.
