Our local sketching group headed to the Glengarry Pioneer Museum last Saturday. I brought an older sketchbook with me in which I had left one blank double-page spread. I easily found a view to fill it. I took my time with the drawing and elected not to go over it with pen, but just to start painting. It took awhile, including a pause to consult Working with Colour by Shari Blaukopf for a good mix for darks. The Sap Green + Carbazole Violet combo was a revelation!
I had hoped to get two sketches done that morning, so, with only a bit of time left I elected to do a quick sketch, drawn directly with pen and then some watercolour.
Here are the results of a slow and of a fast approach.
