Leading to Crestview

 I had time for just one more painting, so I hiked away from the barns until I reached a pole barn for a windbreak, to set up my gear.  I sketched with India ink the scene before me, switching to the fountain pen inks, a dropper and a wash brush to float in the water.  I did add a small round brush for tiny areas, dropping in plenty of water as I added ink.  It is crazy to take this media into the field during a plein air event, but I just can't help myself!  It's so fun to watch the painting unfold, and I learn more about this media with every painting.  I'm so happy this painting went home with someone who likes my particular brand of crazy!  Painting number 3391 in 3391 days.
