Bicentennial Rock Garden

I took Kanoe for a walk at Liliuokalani Park this afternoon, hoping to catch some sun before the big storm heading this way. We found a nice spot in the shade next to the Bicentennial Rock Garden and spent a relaxing couple hours taking in the sights and sounds, where I drew to my heart's content. I took along my new travel watercolors to give this drawing a wash before heading home. I'm trying to decide whether or not to work on it some more. What do you think?

I actually really like the 'unfinished' effect on this, Joan. I think you should leave it as it is, it's a great drawing.

Drop a teensy-smidge of green in at the top and call it done.

I wish I could draw with you. I think we would be so good for each other! Kindred spirits.

Thanks Rebel and Kate! Hey Kate, just set a date! Two eclectic sketchers in one place, do you think the world could handle us?
