Minnesota vacation

fabulous breakfast at Douglas Lodge
I just returned from a week in Minnesota filling my pocket
sketchbook with watercolor vignettes of lake cabin memories and a return trip to Itasca State Park. We celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary on the day we celebrated our niece's wedding at the YMCA camp on Big Cormorant Lake. I sketched some scenes of the wedding venue as a gift for Catie and Chris.

Challenges were not having enough time to sketch, having hot and humid weather, not being able to sketch while jumping off the pontoon, and a few horse flies. Medium was a 3.5 x 5.5 watercolor Moleskin, a Uniball micro pen and a Koi watercolor pocket field sketch box, and, oh..a couple of Corona Lights!
