Being Friday, I went down to the Danville Green to see if any others wanted to do some drawing. Only one other member of the group turned up and he chose to draw in another location. So I went scouting for a motif and came across a farmer haying his field along the Greenbanks Hollow Road in Danville. It was a beautiful, mostly sunny day. I pulled off onto a tractor road, parked the car and set up with my collapsible stool and drawing materials. I took a few pictures with my iPod touch for later reference if I needed it (as it turned out, I didn’t). I started out directly drawing with my Platinum Carbon Pen (no preliminary pencil drawing) and roughed in the composition. Watercoloring followed and the rest is, as they say, “his story”… Painted in 5″ x 8” Pantelic Aqua Journal with three synthetic brushes, 3/8 in. flat, 3/4 in. flat and #12 round. Completed in about 45 – 50 minutes.
