'Kestor 10/1/12 '
graphite, gouache and ink on Ingres paper
I mentioned new year resolutions in my previous post, when I showed you the ernormous reading list. Now I'm going to introduce the other major resolution I've made!
I need to brush up my landscape sketching skills, so I have decide to do a local landscape drawing or painting each week this year. They are not intended to be major works of art, simply an exercise for me, where I can be freer and more experimental with materials if I want.
Todays effort was this, a granite outcrop with a lot of strata lines.
For now, I will have to work from photos, as the weather is not conducive to 'plein air' painting, though I hope I might be able to get out and about with my sketchbook a bit more often this year.
