A wee sketch

Today I am posting a wee sketch.  A memory from my summer break.  Its a channel marker near where we spend a lot of our time on summer weekends.  I was so impressed by something Artscott.net.wordpress.com posted on his blog the other day that I wanted to try it myself.  He used a Q-tip of all things to blend charcoal and water color pencil.  So here is my first attempt using a Q-tip.  I was rather pleased with the result.  I don’t use water colors very often because I seem to bungle them.  Water color pencils have made my life easier.  But a Q-tip?  Who knew? This is awesome!!  Thank you Scott!
