IDT Session 7 / En Plein Air sketching at Gray’s Lake Park


Hello all! This is from the 7th session at Gray’s Lake Park in Des Moines. It was so super windy that my drawing board could have blown away! My muse in the water could barely keep his sail up as well. For this project, I used oil pastel on Bristol Board paper. I also used blending sticks. I think the final turned out a little more colorful than the real life photo (I wish we had turquoise water here in Iowa) but it is all up to an artist’s interpretation anyways.

All the best and keep on making!
