Sunshine after rain!

Here are two more of my sketches from my last trip, using watercolor pencils. It was warm and rainy in Brazil, these scenes try to capture moments of intense sunshine at noon, and a beautiful sunset after rain... These nice looking houses were just a hundred meters or so from the sea.

It was harder to make this latter sketch, given the intense sun and the wind. Another reason to rush was that it was lunch time and my family was waiting for me...

Back from vacation!

We are just back from a trip to Brazil, to introduce our three month old to my family. It was another busy trip, with little time to paint, but I did add to my sketchbook. The scene above was a view from the beach in Coroados, Paraná. It was sketched with watercolor pencils, which proved very practical in the hot, windy weather.
