Northville Day 3
This was interesting. I arrived at 4:00 P.M. and worked for 2 hours. That's when the attention starved kids showed up and started throwing branches in the stream right between the rocks I was drawing. It's about 2 feet of water here and I wasn't going in so I had to finish. I was a little ticked off by it. They knew I was drawing these rocks and did it anyway.
I decided to highlight the water with a gel pen again. I was much bolder this time.
If any of you bloggers go out to do pleine aire drawing, I highly recommend taking a white gel pen. This is now an indispensible tool in my kit. I think it was only a dollar.
BTW I did this drawing on scrap booking card stock and it is laid paper so it has a slight cross weave texture you may be able to see it.
I have been following Sadie Jernigan Valeri's blog posts on the Hudson River School Fellowship that she is a part of and her work looks splendid and I can't wait to see what all of her work turns into.
You can also look up Hudson River School Fellowship and see some great work.
Oh well, I'm off to bed.
