Back to Seton Portage for a few days. This time I tried to do all my sketches in paint, or at least starting with the paint and only adding pen lines if I felt desperate. I was concentrating on values - the darks and lights that make paintings convincing, and which I often make wishy-washy when I'm colouring in pen drawings. They range from 20-minute to 1-hour efforts. And then a quick value-scribble of the setting sun with my pen, which was feeling neglected.
