New book, new markers, new way to sketch

A nice stop today on Bainbridge Island at the public dock near Winslow. I walked into town a couple of times, first just to look around and get some exercise. Second with camera, sketchpad, pencil, and dollars in my pocket.

I stopped in at Oil and Water Art Supply and bought some books and markers. This book, "Value Sketching with Markers" by D. Anderson, is all about using markers for notan sketches. I bought three markers, too. You can see the sketch I did once we stopped at Port Madison at the north part of the Island.

It's a beautiful bay, surrounded by very expensive homes. I think that there's a lot of old Seattle money here. I can hear the call of the loon as the sun sets. Life is good.
