BACKPACKING AND SKETCHING . . .
Two nights ago, I camped in an area near my office then went into work from there (after working out at the gym)--all to test my new backpacking set-up before I head out on the Taum Sauk section of the Ozark Trail with my daughter, Lydia. (Speaking of Lydia, here's her new blog about teaching preschool: Positively Preschool.)
In the morning after emerging from my tiny backpacking tent, I did these quick sketches. They're what I call "pen and wash"--pen followed by watercolors with a Koi "pocket field sketch box." It's a technique I'm still learning . . .
