sketchbook :: Edisto Island, SC, part II

While at Edisto we stopped in Kings Market for some fresh produce. To eat and of course, to sketch.
Lemons for our fresh grilled fish. Onions because they were so pretty. And peaches. Because who can resist peaches. This photo also shows our friend's latest bird house acquisition from Paul, the bird house seller on HWY 174 on Edisto Island. Paul makes the bird houses with reclaimed wood, and they are charming.
I did a few sketches in my 9 x 12 Kilimanjaro watercolor pad. This was the best of the lot, with my new sun hat, Gary's shell, and the birdhouse.
The palm trees surrounding our cottage were delightful.
So was sitting on that screened porch.
We didn't know what this wildflower was, but it fit nicely with an empty vinegar bottle for a quick watercolor study.
And the beach. We all loved walking that beach several times a day.

Life always sounds so beautiful and perfect in your neck of the woods, Ann. I love seeing some of the fruits in your sketchbook. These pages are no different! That little wildflower is especially pretty!
