Connetquot River State Park Preserve
I did it!!! Yeah!. Went to paint plein air yesterday. We drove to the fish hatchery at the park. Thank you Joan, you found a beautiful location.
I did this plein air sketch using water-soluble graphite and a aqua-brush. It was a quick sketch, my hands went numb. Thank you Maggie Latham for a the inspiration to make tonal sketches using the water-soluble graphite pencils.
As for the deer sketch. I did this quick sketch from photos we took. I couldn't believe how these magnificent animals actually posed for a picture. So I will continue to make more studies and learn how to draw and paint deers.
Oh, life is good. Happy painting to all.
Oh, yes thank you Bruce Sherman for sharing your joy and dedication to plein air painting.
