Yesterday I kayaked from Rockport Harbor to Halibut Point. No breeze on the way up, but quite windy on the way back and much harder paddling. I stopped and watched some sailing lessons. My favorite Micron pen ran out so I had to use the stubby brush one that came in my variety pack. Turned out perfect for sketching in a kayak that is rocking wildly in the waves. It's not as delicate as I'm used to, but very nice for some very quick work. It was a gorgeous day! I painted the drawings when I got home. They are all 5"x8" on very sturdy watercolor paper.

beach shack

There's a row of these rickety shacks on the wild side of Aruba, by Baby Beach and the prison. I am not sure I want to know the purpose of them but I like their artistic look. Barely put together, made of tin and wood, they look like they could just topple over into the waves.
High cliffs were behind me while taking this photo, and wild goats wandered around the grassy area by the beach. I'd like to go back and explore the few dirt roads in this area.

Tree and ferns

I am teaching art camp this week and this is a small section of a pen & ink that I did on the trails today while sitting by the brook.
