ShedsPosted: January 7, 2019
On my recent holiday to Sanibel Island I made the choice to travel light. That meant no easel and no large sheets of paper — just a sketchbook, a pen, a few brushes and a small palette. You might have seen my post about riding around on my bike to sketch. It was liberating to travel like that, but I have to say I sometimes missed having my big brushes and bigger sheets of rough watercolour paper.
Now that I’m back and have all my materials at my disposal, I had an urge to push some paint around on a bigger surface, so I took a quick photo in the woods while I was out walking the dog this morning, and painted in studio. It’s way too cold to paint outside today (-16C), but it did feel good to put down some brushstrokes on a quarter sheet of Arches Rough.
