I took with me a portable kit for the stencil technique that I've been working on for some time now. The experiment went very well - I can have all the tools in a pocket and work on location. It does require a surface to work on (either putting a sketchbook on my knees or standing next to somewhere where I can place my book). And I tried adding white gouache to it for the first time - here is an image I shared in a previous post - when it was unfinished. And again - in its final version.
I used this technique to work in the cypress lane too. It is a mind-bending row of trees that creates a tunnel that catches the light in a very special way. This was probably the most challenging sketching spot for me because of so many amazing views - each one more interesting than the other. All three of us ended up experimenting with our subject and tools. Photos of me are by Srivani and Suhita. Thank you!
