So we were traveling back from Maine yesterday so there was no time for painting. I had this sketch done in an alpha series Stillman and Birn sketchbook that had been done recently enough to qualify for the 30 in 30.
Sketchbook paper always seems to let the paint dry very quickly and isn’t very absorbent. This means you have to work quickly and embrace the slightly rough and ready result. I think it worked pretty well in this case and it might be a finalist for the Christmas card series for next year.
