Today's sketch

Another warm, sunny, beautiful day in Seattle -- so warm that when I went out to sketch this afternoon, I didn't even need a jacket.

I'd already spent my lunch hour indoors at a restaurant with a coworker, and was only able to get away later in the afternoon for half an hour.  I went to the Agua Verde Cafe and Paddle Club and found a seat in the sunshine by the back side of the building, where a few colorful kayaks were stored.

Instead of watercolor, I used water-soluble colored pencils, and then used a waterbrush to make it look like watercolor.  This technique was a lot easier to do quickly, as I didn't have to mix each color.  It was a good solution for having limited time to work.
