9X12 Pen & Ink Sketch on Arches 140# Water Color Paper hit with Acrylic Washes: This is my favorite place to sketch and paint late in the afternoon, especially when the locals pull their dingys up to help me with my composition. I wish I had taken his name and address, I would send him one. I did this one in a big hurry to get the sun on the dingy, maybe 40 minutes. Then it was all over with.
I am semi retired and love to travel with my 9X12 #140 Strathmore pad, my Sharpie Ultra Fine ink pen and five or six sticks of pastels or acrylics to color in my “finds” Sometimes I get real lucky and my wife Dawn will take some pictures I can use later. I seem to always be able to give some kind of sketch to my subjects or those bystanders who desperately want to give me some advice.
