While I was walking and sketching yesterday I was gathering things to take home and sketch. Erv found one feather and the other two drifted in.
Haiku for them:
‘Three pretty feathers
Waiting for us to find them
Sweet gifts from above’
The reeds by the lake were dried and when I examined them they had little pockets for creating buoyancy.
The flat piece of palm leaf laying at the top of the page works great for ink and watercolor. I had to try.
The leaf just came along for the ride 😄
It was such a fun day!
The rest of my journal page. The fish was the star yesterday and today it’s the ducks. A haiku for each vignette. An urban (rural) sketch.
Watercolor on Arches 140# WC paper.
The start of a journal page from yesterday’s fishing. No one was catching fish until this guy caught a little panfish causing excitement among the guys. You can see how small it was.😄
‘One little fish caught
Created much excitement
Up and down the shore’

We had such a fun busy day yesterday I wanted to capture it in sketches. I used pencil, ink, watercolor and scraps of paper sketches to do both pages. Done in Stillman&Birns beta soft cover sketchbook.
#inktober #haikutober Haiku:
You used to be pretty pink
Autumn turned you brown
My daily journal page turned into two days on one page. Some days are like that, too busy.

#inktober #haikutober day 4. A little scarecrow doll ready to retire for the season. Haiku:
Hey little scarecrow
Summer protection of plants
Your work is done now.
I am loving seeing all the #inktober sketches here. Very creative and inspiring.
My journal page from yesterday. How could I resist the daisies I saw in the store.
I sketched this when it was calm on the lake but today is perfect sailboat weather—windy!
#inktober #haikutober for 10/03/15
Haiku: Sailboat ahoy
Moving slow across water
Just not enough wind.
My journal page from Friday. I love how my ‘weather window’ turned out. The sky was dark blue and the moon was peeking between the pine branches. Makes the whole page worth it.
Watercolor and ink.
