Here are a couple pages in different journals of our trip to Fort Island Beach a few weekends ago.
This first page entry is standing on the pier looking towards the man-made beach and the second is from the beach area itself looking towards the pier.
This one worked in the meandering journal an art friend made for me back in January out of Arches paper.
Second painting/sketch from the Strathmore Toned sketchbook. I chose the gray paper for this one because it actually depicts the gray skies with storms that were coming in off and on that day. At the time we were there, it wasn't storming (had already hit earlier that morning) but then the sky opened up about the time we were leaving.
