Happy New Year!

Friday, January 04, 2019

Just back from a whirlwind holiday trip to New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. Most of my time was spent with friends and family -- there was much reading, cooking, eating, shopping, playing of games, and visiting. And dodging raindrops!

Still, I managed to get a few sketches in.

After we took M.'s family to Sunday Eve of Christmas Eve brunch at the Weekapaug Inn, we stopped in downtown Westerly, Rhode Island, to visit the lovely Savoy Bookshop & Cafe. We ended up staying in Westerly longer than planned though, since the car battery gave out! I parked myself on a bench and sketched this while we waited for AAA to arive.

It's a mishmash of mixed media: ink, watercolor, colored pencil, gel ink.

This next sketch was also done while waiting -- this time, for the train from Boston's North Station to West Concord, Massachusetts, where we were meeting friends for dinner.

Only when we'd settled into our New Year's Airbnb rental did I have time for a more leisurely sketch. Here's the view of Indian Lake from the window of our rental house in South Kingston, Rhode Island.
