In preparation for doing some paintings, I have started a series of color sketches with the art stix to determine what to do next. The first one is from last week at Field Farm. The other four are from today in Washington Crossing Park. The sun makes all the difference. The sun was not out for the first one. Some images I can get out of my system with just a sketch. Others I want to return to, and do something more involved, with more care. But I like the sketches which are done very quickly.
