Any city but herePosted: March 24, 2016
Even though my luggage is now — after five days — officially considered “lost” by the airlines, I still haven’t given up hope that it will turn up somewhere. I have a few photos of some of my sketches that I did while I was in Palmetto Bluff, but of course still no originals. This one was a workshop demo that I did on Day Two. I had originally hoped to do a full watercolour of the marsh and the river, but as soon as I put my first wash down, there was a lightning strike nearby, a loud clap of thunder and then a torrential downpour. We scrambled for shelter to a tin roof shelter nearby and drew what we could see from that vantage point. It’s ironic to look at this now and realize that the original could be in the airport of any one of these cities.
