For this sketch, I sat on a bench in the shade, while doing my laundry at the Green Turtle Marina. I did a light pencil sketch (15 to 20 min.) then went over it with a Staedtler Permanent “Fine” marker (about 10 min.). The dock had contemporary pilings, but I changed them to weathered wood. I kept the dock light to convey the sunlight. Using a portable palette & small water container, I added the color with a #12 pointed brush. The sketchbook is Arches 140-pound cold press, spiral bound, about 7 x 10″.
Little alley with alleycats — the town of New Plymouth had delightful little pathways with blooming plants, picket fences and limestone walls.
