Park here, paint thatPosted: February 9, 2016
I’m not sure why this is, but every time I choose to paint from my car, there’s light snow falling which makes it difficult to look out the front window. I end up turning to my left and painting what I see out the (drier) side window. I don’t really care what I draw — I just want to draw something during the short time I have — but that can frequently leave me with some strange subjects in my sketchbook, or at least some oddly cropped views. I liken this one to painting the model from the knees down. I could see a bit of old house, a bit of old tree, a bit of foreground, and not much else. With closeup views like this, ink and wash work better than watercolour alone, no doubt because of the varied surface textures. Drawn with a Platinum Carbon pen on Fluid watercolour paper.
