It's cold here

We are back in Maine and on top of serious jet-lag we are seriously cold! It was 6° the other morning. I am having a bit of a time trying to find my creative muse in my new surroundings. My palette of colors for sketching is quite different here. Gone are all the rich greens and bright warm tropical colors and back to wintery blues, browns and grays.

From our deck we can see the sun come up over the Casco Bay, so I can sneak in a bit of orange. This is a very quick sketch looking east yesterday morning.

EDM #253 Draw your socks. Now that we are back in Maine I have dug out the hats, gloves and boots. Digging through the sock drawer I found these fleece socks. I curled up in front of the fire with Sophie and sketched these.
