16 February, 2019. Enough is enough, Mother Nature! I get it: Snow is pretty. But I’m weary of the indoors. Sketching on location is catch-as-catch-can from the front seat of my car. Pulling over to the side of the road to scrawl a few marks onto paper is dicey – the roads are slick and every passing vehicle is a potentially unguided juggernaut.
And conditions evolve quickly. This morning the light changed too fast for me to keep up.
Back indoors, I continue to play around: yesterday evening it was made up landscapes, wet-in-wet washes, atmosphere, negative space. It’s a purely visual experiment but I feel I’m getting repetitive. I need to work on something different.
Enough, already! Mother Nature, you won’t foil me! I am heading out this afternoon, regardless of the conditions.
