Road Sketch 6
"Road Sketch 6" ( 3.5 x 5.5 in., watercolor)
There are roads in south Texas that fan out from the gulf coast; they're long, straight and (mostly) empty, now that IH35 is a more convenient route to the coast for most travelers. I prefer these lonely roads. In the morning there's a glow in the sky and a shimmer of 'road haze' on the horizon that's mesmerizing! I've always wanted to paint that. I think I captured it pretty well here.
