George’s Postcard Note: Late in the day we went into Nouassa to wait for sunset at the tiny harbor. I sat down next to a group of old men who were smoking, clicking their worry beads, and gossiping (I surmised) about the tourist. To limit my pallet, I took only watercolor pencils, and had fun capturing this cliché view, along with maybe half a dozen people awaiting the magic moment with their cameras. Watercolor pencils are fun because they create a line, but allow you to convert the line to a wash by adding water — it seemed like a good way to show the water and the boat reflections.
