Cool Morning, Watkins Mill Church

Glorious weather this morning...59 when I got up! By the time I was ready to go out sketching it had warmed to 69, but in the sun out by the church it got quite a bit warmer. Still, it was quiet and peaceful and just what I needed after a stressful week--ants and all!

I turned onto the little gravel road that winds through the woods to the Watkins Mill church and school and discovered, around the first bend, a deer, dancing up the middle of the road! I stopped, and it bounded up into the woods--but not far. It seemed curious about me, stopping a few feet off the road and staring at me, swiveling those big ears to see what I might be about. I grabbed for my sketchbook and that was all it took. It turned tail and ran!

Wasn't in the mood to model today, I guess...

This technique works really well for journal entries - I love the half-drawing, half-painting feel to it. Looks like a lovely, sunny morning - I'm glad you shared it. It's cold and gray here right now.
Thank you! I was expecting a bit more of the drawing to show through, but oh well...

Where are you that it's cold and gray? Sounds nice, after this hot summer, here...
