I've been re-refining my tools, and trying to lighten my load while still having what I need with me. Sometimes, I slip up, like this day at Lawson Lake!
|I didn't want to work with waterbrushes, exclusively, I wanted "real brushes"...and a water container.|
OOoops. No water container! Not much water, either.
Happily, there had obviously been a BIG whoop-te-do at the park and the trash bins were stuffed full...I found a lot of bottled water containers, and whipped out my little Swiss Army Knife to make a waterbowl. Voila', another bottle was almost full!
Obviously I wouldn't DRINK it since it's been opened, but it was fine to paint with....
|It was a hot say and I couldn't settle on what I wanted to sketch...till I noticed the beautiful blue shadows on the curving road into the park.|
|The summer colors were lovely...and yes, I edited out the signposts! Love that artistic license...|
|I was fairly happen with the resulting sketch...and a lovely record of the day. The little black cat at the curve drove me nuts, every time a car would come down the road into the park, but he never moved a whisker!|
|Last I saw of him, he got bored and wandered off into the woods!|
