Hot, humid, the sky white with vapor; this is what I love. July is my favorite month and it's just about here. Thunderstorms billowing up on the horizon and the lush foliage muted to soft grey-green. I did these marker "paintings" in my sketchbook in 2006. The technology of markers is so good now that you can simulate watercolor without the mess of water or gooey paint. These images, about 7 inches wide, were not done on site but from vivid memory.
