Sketchbook Tuesday - Marsh Memories

Sitting here in our mountains on these cool, wet foggy days, I find myself longing for the Low Country. A wide horizon with a watery view. This is a quick sketch from one of my many photos, done with watercolor pencils and a little colored pencil over top.

Seems so quiet and nice. I could just imagine being there and enjoying nature to the fullest.
I love it!

So beautiful, Ann.

I have always desired to live up in the mountains in a secluded but beautiful small cabin. To wander amongst the trees, kick through the fallen leaves, observe the quiet yet stunning beauty of snow coating it all, enjoying the cool shade in the summer, the new shoots in the spring...

No...as much as I love the sea and often dream of living on a cliff overlooking the north Atlantic, I also dream of these beautiful mountains...

Lovely sketch - I like the looseness of your lines and of course the colours. Marshes are so full of life, I find them irresistible places to visit.

Beautiful - it seems so far away, both the cool weather and the watery place!

I tried a similar scene not so long ago and it turned out flat...which makes me so much more appreciative of your abilities!

I love your use of water color and pencil together.

I grew up in the Low Country - now I live in Central NC. I miss the water..the marsh...the smell

thank you for the memories today.

I've never been there, but your painting of it makes me want to see it. It's just beautiful. nancy
