Yellow lightPosted: September 26, 2013
When I get to a sketching spot I am now in the habit of taking a quick reference shot with my phone. This because I have so often had a truck pull up and block my view. Today I was parked in the wrong direction in the Gigi’s pizzeria lot which forced me to draw and paint faster than usual, all the while expecting the cheese truck to pull up and give me the signal to move on. There’s nothing worse that being jolted out of your happy sketching moment by an irate truck driver with a heavy hand on the horn. But as your brushes and paints fly all over the seat of the car, at least you can rest easy knowing that when you clean up the mess you can always refer to your phone photo to complete the details of the sketch.
