12 6th Street

The weather couldn't be nicer for painting en plein air!  It is such a treat after the heat indexes of 106 last week!  I arrived looking at a different format in my paper, but soon decided to go with a more sweeping view of the scene, capturing house,  garden, and street.  With the dramatic perch on the hill, I took more time sketching out the angles and lines with a water resistant ink, to come back in with a water soluble one.  I then took a water brush pen to the areas I wanted to wash a little, finding the balance.  I do love working with the ink, so therapeutic as I capture a scene. Painting number 3119 in 3119 days.
