Visit to Vermont

A few weeks ago, I went on a small trip to Vermont for the weekend. I only managed to make one sketch though, as I was busy taking care of my baby the whole time. I did this sketch overlooking the lake while sitting on the balcony high above the ground.

I did manage to take some photos though, including some closeups of a family of ducks. I was amazed that they let me get so close to them. Even though I did not get a chance to do the sketching I would have liked, I left feeling very inspired by the landscape.

  1. Looks lovely, Carolyn, and I'm glad you were able to do that beautiful sketch. The linework is so expressive!

  2. This is a great sketch--quality over quantity on this trip. Well done! Love the photos, too.

  3. You have really captured the beauty of Vermont with your sketch and photos.

  4. Oh, la, la! What beautiful scenery! I'm with Kate.... such expressive line work in your sketch.
