More Sketching from Memory

A couple of evenings ago, we had a stellar evening.  Our favorite place to take the dogs to walk is down on hole number 17 of our neighborhood golf course.  Yes, this is the view from the spot where I'd pitch my tent and grow old.

The late day light was stunning with the sun warming up last year's very dead spartina.  New grow is making great progress, but still, when the tide is at its highest point, just the old spartina rises above the water.

I have so many shots of this spot with many variances in lighting.  I'm saving them up for painting references.  But wait!  I don't have to worry about getting enough time to break out the canvas..... I can start the process on my iPad! 

Yes, this image is created on my iPad using the Paper by 53 app. Done in one hour while watching television.  I'm so liking this app!

  2. Hi Pam, I'm a student of Suzanne McDermott. I love the pic above. It reminds me of Edisto Beach. I'm from PA, but go to Edisto in March. Anyway she sent me to your blog to see your journaling. Your work is beautiful. I have an iPad too, so I'll check out the app you're using.

    1. Nice to meet you, Zanna, and thank you! This is about an hour south of Edisto :) I think you'll have a great time with Paper by 53. You do need a version 2 iPad or higher for that app, though.
