This artist is going to a local park this afternoon with other artists. We will be drawing, painting or taking photos. A photo will be used back in my studio for a composition on watercolor paper. Today I will also complete a thumbnail sketch for each photo taken. The sketch will show light sources by the shadows observed and the #2 lead of my sketch pencil will indicate the light and dark values. Hatch lines will be used to fill in areas of eventual color as the thumbnail sketch will be in black, gray and white. The nine-value scale will be used. Hope the temperature warms up above 70 degrees F. It has been cloudy, windy and raining the past week. Good to see the sun again in Eastern North Dakota.
