I got to go to one of the local gardens between the rains and, even though there were endless insects in my bag after this outing, I remembered it fondly as I got to figure out some things. I've been taking a lot of materials with me on location lately and that is always a complication as part of the time ends up spent on making endless choices. And I prefer drawing to making choices. I wanted to simplify my kit again and be more mobile with my sketching. And during this outing, I got to think through what it is that I want to do more of and what I want to do less of.
These are done with color pencils, ink pen, ballpoint pen, stencils, and gouache (see what I mean by too many options?). Still - it was a great day :)
