Here is another page of sketches I did at the plein air outing yesterday. this was my first page. First I worked on the skull, but I couldn't see the skull too well. I was too far away to see the details of the horns. I then worked on the topiary tree in graphite. Then came the vine that was on the overhead wooden arbor (?) and then the fountain. I couldn't get the fountain just right and couldn't see the little ceramic frog that was in the water with the rock. So I left him out.
I then decided to add some colored pencil to the topiary and the vine as we were going to be critiqued and all the others had done paintings.
One thing I wish I had done was go around more and see how everyone worked. I couldn't really see very many of the ladies but I could hear snippets of advice. Next time I will have to get closer to the other artists. That means I need to get a hat before the next outing. It will surely be hot by then.
