Last January Betsy and I traveled along Middle Prong of Little River in the Smokies above Tremont.  I got the photo which is the basis for this color pencil sketch while enjoying the water rushing over and around boulders in the stream.

Our house is all decorated and ready for Christmas.  Betsy is wishing for some snow to complete the picture, but I’m not sure she’ll get it.  This sketch is based on a photo I took several years ago.

Betsy really likes to decorate for Christmas, both inside and outside the house.  This little Christmas tree, decorated with lights, bows and candy canes, sits on our front porch.

Sweetness is one of the newer roses in our yard.  It has a pretty lavender color and a mild fragrance.  It’s a grandiflora rose, and was the 2009 Rose of the Year for Jackson & Perkins.

Blue Hole Falls

Old Stone Fort State Park here in Tennessee contains three waterfalls, but Betsy and I visited during a summer drought several years ago.  We still found flowing water at all three waterfalls, even if the streams were small.  This is a portion of Blue Hole Falls in the park.

The picture on which this drawing was based is shown below.

An Experiment

I’ve enjoyed experimenting with Photoshop, learning new ways to present my photographs.  This sketch is based on a picture I took of a bud on our Double Delight rose.  I need to do some more experimenting with this technique, but I rather like the result.
