Sketches at Dolly Sods
Here are two little watercolor sketches I did today while Adam ran around Dolly Sods. The top painting is of the view from the South Prong Trail-head and the second is from the road looking at Bear Rocks. I am trying to practice with a new little portable watercolor palette so I can at least make some sort of art work or "artwork" on the AT next May. That darn water just sometimes doesn't do what I want it to do- I need to train it a little better! I enjoyed being able to do plein-aire sketches more easily though (oils are SO messy and delicate) while crewing Adam. I think this little portable set will work pretty well for the trip (maybe not the most glorious paintings I'll ever make, but it will tide me over for a few months away from my studio). Enjoy!
