Sometimes Small Is Fun

With decent weather coming late this year, I’m in the mood to walk, and walk, and walk.  My pedometer has been smoking hot from all the activity.  At the same time, my arthritic hand has been giving me fits and so it’s been hard for me to be motivated to sketch.

But small formats fit into the walks and don’t pain the hand too much so I’ve used my trusty 3.5×5.5 Stillman & Birn Epsilon book to work some sketching into my walks.  Here’s a couple of those results.  I might have gotten carried away with the color but I’m trying to figure out the why and how other sketchers do this sort of thing.  I think I like the results.  Do you?

    Have you been using your Portable Painter? How is it working out?

    • Howdy! I just got back from Ottawa and I’m playing catch up. My Portable Painter sits where I do when I watch TV. I like it fine and it’s an upgrade from the popular W&N Sketchers Palette. I’ve moved, however, to metal palettes so I can use magnets to adhere them to a sketching board, sort of in the way that Liz Steel does. — Larry
