Sketching at Gasworks Park

I had a great time seeing and drawing with all of you at Gasworks. What a nice day it was. I even got to fly a kite for a few minutes when nobody was looking. Hopefully the weather will hold for another month, and I won't have to use Payne's Grey for my skies.

All done with 005 Micron pen and watercolor in a small Hand.Book sketchbook. For the record, I really like those Hand.Books.
See you at the locks next month.
Side note to Mark: You were right about the model in that portrait. I thought we were talking about a different drawing. Pigeon has a very unique look.
