Bike and Sketch Summer: Purple Bush Near Library in Gouache

The school year is upon us and I am catching up on scanning and posting about summer filled with lots of sketching and biking and all sorts of adventures around our home. 

This was a lovely outing on a very bright and rather hot day in July - and another page from my A3 Sketchbook #150 (some of the previous adventures of this sketchbook can be found by the #Sketchbook150 tag on this blog), painted with gouache on location. Sketching from a shade helped but taking a photo of the process was a nightmare - as you can see from some examples below. I am still yet to identify the purple bush - which I think calls for another visit to this place to make another sketch - perhaps when the seasons change?
