We took advantage of last week's warm, spring-like weather with a quick outing to Bass Lake in nearby Blowing Rock.
I made two very fast sketches in watercolor only. The late afternoon light was fading fast and the air quickly became cool.
These were both done in a Stillman & Birn Beta, 7 x 10 inch sketchbook. I am nearing the end of this book. It has been mostly filled with notes and compositional scribbles for planning paintings. I will be happy to move on to a new sketchbook, one where I actually do more sketching!
