D, Kitty and I headed south last week to St. Augstine FL for some R&R and to visit my folks. The temperatures were lower than Nashville's 100+ but the humidity made up the difference. The ocean water felt mighty good and I caught a few waves. Some St. Augustine galleries featured some mighty fine local artists who really capture the spirit of the North Florida scenes. Here are a few of my watercolor sketches.
Here is the gouache I did from my pencil sketch down a few posts. This place is spooky at night I bet.

This is the St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Franklin Tennessee. St. Paul’s Episcopal Church is located in the heart of downtown Franklin. It was the first Episcopal Church established in Tennessee. St. Paul’s was founded in 1827.During the Civil War it was used for barracks by Union troops. Many of the pews were burned for fire wood. Following the Battle of Franklin (November 30th, 1864), St. Paul’s was used as a field hospital.
Saturday morning I joined the The Nashville Plein Air Painters at the Old Historic Nashville Cemetery. I could only stay for a half hour or so because I had to go to work. Enough time for a pencil sketch and a memory soak. I got it redrawn on illustration board ready for some gouache. I would like to have seen what the rest of the gang painted but I had to go.

This is in Auburntown TN. Not much going on there these days but plenty of subject matter. My battery went kaput there and a nice lady and her daughter helped my get it jump started with their truck. I was not setting in the middle of the street, I just moved the road over. ;-) This is also from my Aquabee Deluxe Sketchbook.
