A Quick Sketch

© R.L. Delight 2014, Neahkahnie Toe Detail Sketch
I was feeling well enough today to be enticed by the afternoon sunlight and hike up the beach to the north end where Neahkahnie Mountain sits in all his glory. I really wanted to paint but realized that I don't quite have the energy for that at this time so I grabbed my sketchbook, and sat in the sun to do a quick detail sketch. Oh! How wonderful it felt to be sketching by the sea in the warmish autumn sunshine.

The colors and light are exquisite this time of the year on the Northern Oregon Coast. Photos don't even come close to capturing it. With any luck, there will be a nice stretch of weather to paint in when I am feeling up to it. I continue to mend, both my ways and in health!
Here is a poor depiction of the beauty of the afternoon:

Nice R.L.! You're inspiring. I get so busy painting that my sketch book tends to get abandoned!
