More salt marshes - seems to be a recurring theme. They are such a normal sight around here that we really kind of take them for granted. The top thumbnails and following watercolor sketch are from Hog Island (the bottom thumbnail shows Fort Sumter). The bottom watercolor sketch is from Shem Creek.

Sketches and thumbnail sketches of salt marshes viewed from Magnolia Cemetary. The mosquitoes were horrendous that day - sketched some standing up - had to keep moving - seriously, the mosquitoes were many and relentless. Finally had to head back to my car and sketch from there with the windows rolled up and the a/c running. A lone mosquito made it into my car and feasted on me repeatedly...good times...

Sketches done on different days at the same location with different media. The last one ended up being a watercolor mess, but I ended up kind of liking it - that's what happens when you use a brush that's too big for the job...
