Plein Air in the Park

I am back to feeling well again. I remember I swear when I was sick that I would walk/run 100K this year or bike 200K after I recover. So far I did walk 2K and bike 3K. I am so thankful for good health.

This weekend we headed out to the park for a change. I did some waterlily studies. The park surprised us with wonderful beds of cannas and holly-hock in perfectbloom. It did them pleinair with Conte crayon. I was very happy to sit on the grass hill overlook those flowers in the cool morning sun. Life is good.

The holly-hock & orange cannas are 8x11 inch in Conte crayon.

The waterlily are also 8x11 inch in Conte crayon. I think the blue top part of the water lily was a mistake so that was my learning lesson to sketch first.
