Scavenger Hunt Item 13: Watercraft

We had a lovely solar eclipse this past Sunday. I was lucky enough to be sitting along the riverbank with my eclipse-viewing glasses, alternating between watching the sun getting nibbled away to a tiny sliver; and watching a team of dragon boats racing down the Willamette! I was so completely enchanted by the whole scene that I almost didn't want to sketch it...but the way the diffuse, eclipsey light caught the wake of the boats finally did inspire me to break out my watercolors for a quick sketch.

(I just picked up a tube of Payne's Gray paint...and I love it so much.)
