New Jersey.

I took this new sketchbook to a family event, hoping that I can steal a minute or 2 for people sketching. It has toned paper, which I wanted to try. So end up drawing a little lake with kitschy swan pedaling boats, while other members of the family and friends took a stroll around. I joined them later for a walk and was really embarrassed by the compliments and their interest in my little sketch.  So I was invited to visit extended family in further state (9 hours of driving) with ink, paper and easel, to exchange  drawing for a good lunch.

Oh I do think this is a fabulous sketch, Nikira. I just love the way the colors pop on the page! What a gorgeous location too! 9 hours and a painting just for lunch? I think they'd have to up the pay off for me! LOL

Did you like the sketchbook? Fun to see you work with color - see the fall and feel the crisp in th air.

Thank you, CrimsonLeaves. :) I will stay for a few days, if I'll go, would be fun to draw. Just surprising that sketch touches people.

Charlin, I really like the paper. I still have brown sketchbook where I used pencils and white. Just need more practice to sharpen up skills. I got an amazing book, I want to learn from. I will post about it. :)
