Sketching in the park with my favorite daughter

A few weekends ago I went into the park with my daughter with a pencil instead of a trekking pole.   It was challenging but worth every minute.   We both sat and sketched a part of Maine’s beautiful coastline.  The first time we did it I was rather overwhelmed.   The second time we did it I found it more relaxing and could see more clearly how to sketch what I was viewing.  I will spend more time doing this through the summer as my ankle heals from a recent fall.  I am not happy about the dust my trekking poles are gathering but I will be patient and rest in the Lord as I sketch away weekly.

Below is the second day we ventured out and drew Otter cove in ANP.

Below is my first sketch a few days before the one of Otter cove.   Though challenging it was a good exercise.IMG_2502img_2514

  1. Idk about a recent fall- I hope you didnt break your ankle- that was a bit unpleasant for me in jan. The sketch is really very good- What a way to spend the time on the island- daughter and outdoors💗 Sounds great, take care twin, Amy
