This first eleven-hour day of a four-day art festival is rough on a guy who only had two hours of sleep. The crowds have been O.K., conversations sporadic, and sales super-slow. I’m glad I brought along my Winsor & Newton watercolor field box along with some basic supplies. While sitting in a lawn chair, I’ve had a long and steady look at the shops across the street, facing my art booth. Finally, I took out the supplies and began work on this sketch. I first sketched the brick edifice with pencil in my sketchbook, then growing dissatisfied with the lack of color, decided to get out my D’Arches block and begin a watercolor sketch. It has certainly helped the time pass a little better.
Thanks for reading. I wonder if I should bring additional resources for painting again tomorrow?
