Last Day on the Blue Ridge

Did a half hour sketch of Mabry Mill near the 170 mile marker on the Blue Ridge in VA on Thursday. Wonderful cloudless skies and warm sunshine! We found more tree color south of Roanoke. It couldn't have been more perfect.

We are now in SC on Lake Wylie with my sister and brother-in-law. I laid my sketchbook on my sister's jigsaw puzzle table to snap photo with iPad2. I am not counting these sketches as part of my 75 day challenge because I do them in pencil, watercolor them and add micron .005 ink pen afterwards.

The old grist mill is part of a working walkthrough exhibit with many docents working in there making apple butter and gardening and blacksmithing, etc.

  1. Enjoying your sketches; have tried 2x to post a comment but was unable, I guess due to blogger. Just wanted to say your sketches are getting better and better and I envy your ability and time to get them finished and posted! Safe trip and good weather and hope no hurricanes blow through Florida this year. Have fun painting in the sun!
