It seems like such a romantic idea to sit on site and sketch the scene while traveling. While I have had some vacations that allowed for that, this trip to Longbeach, WA did not. I was taken by this quaint beach hotel and snapped two photos from my passenger side window. No I did not get a chance to experience the quaint hotel, it was merely a reaction to the site.
Now more than a week after the trip itself, we are into the drizzly days Oregon is known for. There are last minute preparations for school and gatherings with friends to be shared before the last days of summer are spent. So in the evenings when I have nothing to draw, I return to my photos on trips for inspiration.
This was watercolor done at 11:00 ish PM in my “bad” sketchbook.
