Cabin on the shore

Last Monday I sketched at Kalena's house with friends. At one point we all took a walk along the shore. This old cabin was probably built in the 1950's as a vacation place where families would come on weekends to fish, swim, canoe and water ski. We were there on the day after the Super Bowl and I noticed the "12th Man" flag sadly hanging at half staff. The overcast sky added to the mood and atmosphere. It made me smile to see the yellow door.
I scanned the ink line drawing before adding watercolor.


  1. I love buildings like this that have some character to them. I like that you did it as a double page spread which gives more of a glimpse to the setting of the cabin. Nice!!!

    1. Thank you, Joan. I agree, nothing has that nostalgic character like these old buildings from one's childhood. I wanted the entire experience in the sketch, not just the building. My Pentalic Aqua Journal is just the right size and format for this kind of sketch.
