One of the interesting scenic attributes of Tobago is its rocky coastline and the many jagged peaks of orange-brown rock sticking up out of the water offshore.
The pinnacle below stands 40 feet high in Englishman’s Bay. The first one is a watercolor done during our first visit to that beach. The second is a pen and ink done on our last visit to the beach.
This is a view of the left hand side of Englishman’s Bay. The pinnacle from above is on the far right.
Some of the best work I've done isn't hanging on a wall; it's sitting in a box in my closet that's full of my old sketch books. I fill up one or two books each year. Some of the sketches end up as a basis of a more formal work, but most don't. They’re more important to me as a pictorial diary and also as on-going training; learning to really see and to understand shape, light and color.
This blog is to share my sketches as well as my sketching experiences.
