|7/29/13 Platinum Carbon ink, watercolor, water-soluble colored pencils, Zig markers|
As a frequent Green Lake walker and park visitor, I see this view often, and I’ve sketched it a few times, too. But I usually end up painting a mass of green trees that looks too dark. Today I took a cue from mixed media sketcher extraordinaire Inma Serrano and grabbed a couple of water-soluble colored pencils. And I also took a cue from both Inma and another mixed media sketcher diva, Lynne Chapman, and tossed realistic color to the wind. I don’t know if the sketch is better than previous attempts, but I definitely had more fun! (The benefits of the Barcelona Urban Sketching Symposium go on and on!)

P.S. Blog reader Janine was in town from the Bay Area, so we met for coffee to chat about sketching and life. It was great meeting you, Janine, and I’m inspired by your enthusiasm and passion for sketching!
