Port Townsend is just a walk-on ferry ride away, and offers hours of exploration
and intrigue to sketch!
But first I had to catch the camillias blooming just outside our bedroom window.
They are a little late this year, tho ever cheerful! I have been playing with my
quill dip pen and black/brown mixture of ink.
First stop off the boat is generally lunch at Sirens, with its upstairs vista over the water, warm
cozy nooks and delicious food! I liked the line weight possibilities with the quill pen, but am not totally
comfortable carrying around jugs of ink....
A high point for me in Port Townsend is Joglo Indonesian Imports, just across the street. http://www.joglonorthwest.com/
This ink mixture has a little flow, interesting how it blended with the watercolor.
