|1/25/15 Caran d'Ache Museum water-soluble colored pencil, watercolor, Canson XL 140 lb. paper|
Sometimes people who live in other parts of the country ask how we can stand to live in a climate that is rainy, drizzly, cloudy or overcast for much of the year.
Today, Jan. 25, the temperature is 63 degrees, and the only clouds I see are as thin as a whisper.
Today, this is the answer.
Technical note: This sketch seemed to demand watercolor only, but I didn’t have quite enough confidence to paint Mt. Rainier’s shape without some kind of line first. A dark blue water-soluble pencil makes an ideal line – it just dissolves once the paint is applied.
