Minto Island Walk

Today was another beautiful day. I went for a walk  in Minto Island park out South River Road. I stopped after about a half hour to sketch a stand of trees.

On the walk back, I stopped on a bridge. As I stood there a kayaker passed under the bridge heading north. I sketched him in quickly and then completed the rest of the sketch.

Here’s the full spread of my 5 X 8 inch Moleskine watercolor notebook.

I did both sketches standing up in the shade. I painted the trees resting the notebook on my bag which was hanging around my neck in front of me. For the second one I placed the notebook on the top rail of the bridge. After I finished each sketch (which took about 10 to 15 minutes each), I took a reference photo with my iPod Touch.
