|LEATHER SKETCHBOOK: MANZANITA BARK|
Wednesday, December 12, 2012
This is another addition to my beautiful leather sketchbook. On Orcas Island it is lush with woodlands. One of the common trees is the Manzanita which has a rich burnt sienna colored bark. This is a little sketch of the bark peeling on the trunk. I was fortunate to receive a prize of M Graham watercolor paints from the Santa Clara Valley Watercolor Society annual show. The colors are rich and luminous. I decided to try them in the sketchbook fresh out of the tube. Loved the feel and handling of the paint.
