"Another Day at Richland's Farmers' Market"

Yesterday the Allied Arts folks held a "First Friday Paint-In" on their patio so I dropped by to see what and how they do that.  Huddled up against the building on a concrete pad in front of the building they were all busy with their paints and canvases.  

What they were doing looked like fun, but I felt the tug of the excitement of the Farmers' Market just a block up the street, so that's where I spent my morning.

Future "First Friday Paint-Ins" are scheduled for inside the building.  Too claustrophobic for me, and I hardly ever do any sketching/painting from reference photos, or imagination: They are all on location these days for me.  

6x9 Super Aquabee Sketchpad, Noodler's Lexington Gray ink, watercolors.

  1. I really love these Jim. There is a definite, confidence of line (so FEW!) and lots of depth to your drawings. The colors are bright and again, very pointed in their use. I love the detail but there is also a lot of open space - great variety!
