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!
