Plein Air - Sly Park


We just spent 4 days camping at Sly Park, on Jenkins Lake. I was enjoying the shade of all the beautiful trees and too lazy to move to a new location in the sun so I just painted my view from our campsite picnic table. Two of the children in our group came alongside and started to draw with me. They were so sweet. I tried to do minimal drawing and wanted to just try something loose. I ended up using pen and ink to pull it together (one of my favorite techniques).

Very relaxing! I can see why you didnt want to move it's a nice view and nice rendering. Missed you today at Janice's.
