Just at 7 pm at the north woods cabin, a kind of stillness settles over the lake. The lake goes glass-like. The cabin faces west so the warm sun settles gently on our shore and the children love to swim around this time and then come up to a late supper on the screen porch to watch the sunset. Grampy starts a campfire after supper if we are not too exhausted and we watch the stars come out.
As I watched Alex and his friend CJ jump off the pier and swim off to a nearby island, our neighbors came down with their grandson to do a little fishing. So I did a very quick sketch of them. And also a quick one of the pontoon boat docked just one island away. I used a .005 Micron to do the quick sketch (no graphite involved) and then a touch of watercolor using a water brush. Then up the hill to warm the veggies and put supper on the table. I am off to ring the dinner bell now.
