More Autumn color play & more mess in the art room.
Yesterday a friend wrote that she went on a cruise & had wanted to sketch, but it had been hard with all those people around. It can even be a challenge when you're alone, I wrote back. Finding a place to sit, having attention from onlookers, sun, rain, bugs, lugging materials...Perhaps making it a habit is the way to go so that you don't feel quite right when you don't get to observe & draw in a day.Yesterday eve at the Camden Library I was immediately stunned by beauty of the gardens outside the back door, so I stopped to sketch, sitting on a rock wall. The weather was great, no bright sun, not many people, but Surprise! There were tiny ants crawling all around my bag & my seat! So I did a super fast, scribbly, sketch, snapped a quick reference photo, shook my stuff out & ran! Above is a sketch from the sketch, done back in the messy art room.
