My en plein air trip lasted from 9:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. and I started to run out of sanded paper. I've always told my students not to use just plain white paper but the 20 minute hike back to the car to get more paper was not appealing especially in 90 degree heat.
Well, why not try the white sketchbook paper. It won't be a big loss if it doesn't work and I was pleasantly surprised.
In last month's blog I told you about taking photos of the completed pieces while I was still out in the field to show my customers. Yes, the customers were interested and the first 2 pieces I sold were from the Shakertown trip with the photos of the completed pieces along with the scenes.
Next week I'll have some photographs of Olympic National Park with the most glorious trees I've ever seen.
