Above: A quick sheep sheering sketch I made on Thursday, the opening day of the Fair. I went to hear my friend Charlie Maguire sing, but of course I got a lot of sketching done too. Click on the image to view an enlargement. (I'm testing Pigma Sensei Pens here, with Schmincke watercolors, on TH Saunders/Waterford 140 lb. watercolor paper. I will have more to say about materials on another day.)
Time flies when you're having fun, and time flies especially fast during a Minnesota Summer! Here it is the end of August and we are in the midst of a GREAT Minnesota State Fair.
Tomorrow is the Seventh Minnesota State Fair Sketch Out.
We will be meeting at 4:30 p.m. in the food court between the Ag-Hort and Food Buildings. (If it rains we'll be inside the Ag-Hort Building, in the center of its spoked halls.)
I can't wait to see how you capture the Fair in your journals and sketchbooks.
