Photo Inspiration

My blogging friend Sabrina of My Miscellany took this picture on her recent holiday in Brittany with her husband.  It reminded me of a picture that I had taken a couple of months ago, but hers had many more boats and just spoke to me.  So yesterday afternoon I got out my little 3 x 5 art journal and my Derwent Inktense pencils and used her photo as inspiration for my little watercolor below.

As you can see, there are not as many boats in my picture,  and there are a few other things missing but I am happy with the way it came out.  

Here's the photo that I took back in June.  I just might have to try something with this one too.

Thank you Sabrina, not only for the inspiration but for allowing me to share your photo.  

Please do click on this link to see more of her wonderful photography.  I love when she let's us tag along on her holidays!


  1. Oh my, you are multi-taleneted!

  2. Oh, you should definitely do something with your photo too, Lorraine. I love the curve of the grassy bank in the foreground.
    3x5, I had no realisation that your painting is that small - in which case you have even more patience to have fitted so much detail into such a little canvas. I don't think I'd even try. DH was very impressed with it!

  3. I would have been by sooner, but I've been out of town. I loved the empty (vacant) room below. And your drawings are both stunning. I was super, super impressed. I've heard those pencils are amazing, and you just proved it. You did an excellent job.


It's always so nice to hear from visitors. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
