Trip to Florida with my sketchbook and watercolors

 We went to visit St. Augustine Florida and as usual had a good time. Of course I brought along my sketchbook and watercolors. I left the oils at home. 
 Cruising around town it always nice to see peoples plants and flowers.
 
 On down the road to Matanzas it felt nice and cool under the bridge. To the right was the beach and to the left was man reeling in some fish for dinner.
 
It would have been nice to join him if I had my pole as there seemed to be plenty of fish that day. Cannot beat fresh fish!
 
 I like to fill up pages with little sketches I call “Watercolor Snaps”. Mostly I get down a few lines and I finish up from memory. Some just totally from memory or imagination. A day of walking or riding around you will have plenty of mental snap shots to work from.
