Overhead

I always get a little antsy when I haven’t been out to draw in a few days and even though I knew rain was coming, I went out to sketch at the boat club, knowing that I might enjoy a little drama. From where I was sitting, what was most remarkable was the white of the masts against those darkening trees and sky. As you can see, the rain came down so quickly that I never was able to complete the bottom part of the sketch because I couldn’t see out of the window. The white lines of the rigging are done with a gel pen that I keep in my bag because white paint applied with a brush is just never fine enough.
