Just a quick note and a sketch from yesterday. While waiting to pick up my dear friend, Tracy, after her seminar in Seattle on Sunday, I started sketching a plant in the hotel lobby. Sure enough, my friend appeared before I had finished drawing two leaves. I took a snapshot of the plant to finish later at home. Here's the result, a simple pen sketch with a watercolor pencil background. I decided to give the color to the background and not the plant. To me, the background color still gives the impression of green leaves.
