A morning sketching in a favorite place. This is the first of four, left it in its original sketchy condition without any retouching in the studio. Started at 8am and finished at 2pm, including a break for bag lunch and thermos of tea. Sometimes, the conditions are perfect. Quiet. A lull before season starts, folks still up north looking at leaves. High season here's only between Christmas and Easter. Leaves the rest of the year for perfect painting conditions.
